Immigrants in detention centers have not been charged with criminal offenses, but they are treated like criminals. Warehousing immigrants – including asylum-seekers who are fleeing violence and persecution in their native countries – in prison-like environments goes against any understanding of human dignity.

Con demasiada frecuencia,, guards use excessive force against detainees, and abusively place them into solitary confinement. Time and again, adequate medical care is denied to detainees, and we have received reports of them being served food with worms, as well as discolored drinking water. Further, particularly in the Deep South, virtually every detainee’s due process rights – including the right to legal representation – are violated.
