Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

REPORT: from 2008 to 2012, DHS detained at least 1,366 children in adult detention facilities throughout the United States

Rate this Entry

The National Immigrant Justice Center (NIJC) has determined through a 2010 FOIA request that from 2008 to 2012 the Department of Homeland Security has maintained a practice of detaining children in adult detention facilities.  


NIJC determined that from 2008-2010 children under the age of 18 were cumulatively held for a total of 36,598 days in 30 different adult detention centers.  Four children were detained between
1,000 and 3,600 days, with one child being held for a decade after being detained at the age of 15.  


It is believed this data has been under-reported, however, so there is no way of knowing how many undocumented children are actually being caged nationwide.
