OUTRAGE OF THE DAY: SHENANIGANS ALBUQUERQUE DETENTION FACILITY

Rate this Entry

OK, I haven't had an Outrage of the Day in a while. But it's been a rare period where I haven't had anything that interesting and new to get my blood boiling.



But here's another case of serious problems at an immigration detention center. This one is in Albuquerque, New Mexico. It was connected to a jail. It was run by a private corporation. There's sexual misconduct allegations. Malnutrition. Retaliation for whistleblowing. Rampant theft. There's apparently another inmate death - this time a Korean woman who was repeatedly denied requests for medical treatment. The problems are apparently so serious that ICE has evacuated all of the detainees and moved them to other locations.



There are a lot of troubling questions -



- Why do we have immigration detention centers housed at jails? These are people being held on non-criminal immigration charges and are awaiting deportation proceedings. Many of the inmates, by the way are children.



- Do we need to rethink the propriety of having private corporations - the lowest bidders in most cases - running our immigration detention facilities? I've written on this blog of numerous instances in the last few weeks of problems at privately run facilities.



- Why is ICE holding back information on the specific allegations?



Serious questions. The public is owed some answers.
