Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

ACLU of Georgia Charges Obama Administration with Serious Violations of Immigrant Detainees Human and Constitutional Rights

Rate this Entry
The ACLU of Georgia has released a*182 page report charging the Obama administration with serious human and constitutional rights*violations in immigration detention facilities in the State of Georgia.
The report "Prisoners of Profit"*is dedicated to the memory of Roberto Medina Martinez (1969-2009)*and all immigrants who have perished in the custody of Immigration and Customs*Enforcement.*
The ACLU found that*ICE's aggressive "Operation Endgame" goal of deporting all removable aliens by 2012 has overloaded the*already overcrowded immigration court dockets, and immigrant detainees' due*process rights are being violated, both in immigration court and at the detention facilities.
The report highlights the following concerns relating to:
Abuse of Power, including verbal and physical abuse, and retaliatory behavior from guards

Due process concerns during the removal process

ICE officers and Immigration Judges coercing detainees to sign stipulated orders of removal

Non-Citizens are being detained in excess of a presumptively reasonable times

Inadequate medical and mental health care, and*unreasonable delays in provision of care

Treatment of detainees with mental Disabilities is punitive rather than care oriented

Conditions for attorney visits are inadequate and raise attorney/client violations

Inadequate cell conditions

Transfers take detainees away from family and community

Imposition of punitive segregation units

Hygiene concerns, including food concerns.

How many reports need to be released before this administration takes steps to eliminate the human rights violations that are a hallmark of the immigration detention system.

I'm sure it will be a "top priority" for the administration if Obama wins a second term.

Pathetic.
