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 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel asked federal public defenders and immigrant rights groups to submit amicus briefs arguing that a San Jose, California, woman was improperly convicted because the law is vague or overbroad.
