Power has finally been restored at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, New York. Inmates have spent almost a week without power, heat, hot water, or blankets.

According to CNN the restoration of power comes after New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo called on the Department of Justice to immediately investigate the circumstances at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn.
New York Attorney General Letitia A. James also shared her thoughts on the horrible conditions inside the jail.

“It is unacceptable, illegal, and inhumane to detain people without basic amenities, access to counsel, or medical care.”

Inmates climbed on metal fencing shouting to their families who protested outside for their human rights.
