A privately-run detention center is exploiting immigrants by paying them a dollar a day, Washington State’s attorney general says.

Attorney General Bob Ferguson said Wednesday that he’s suing GEO Group, a private prison operator.

The suit alleges GEO Group uses immigration detainees to run “virtually all non-security functions” at its Northwest Detention Center (NWDC) in Tacoma, Washington — all while paying them next to nothing. Detainee responsibilities range from cooking and cleaning to painting.

“A multi-billion dollar corporation is trying to get away with paying its workers $1 por día,” Ferguson said in a statement. “That shouldn’t happen in America, and I will not tolerate it happening in Washington.”
