Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Abuses Continue in Immigration Detention Centers

Rate this Entry

The Houston Chronicle reports that the Obama administration has done little, if anything, to clean up immigration detention centers, and that the inspection and monitoring system that was put in place fails to sufficiently protect immigrants from inhumane prison-like conditions.


What I find most troubling about the report is that this administration continues to allow private contractors to house immigrants despite their knowledge of the existence of "flagrant violations of their own detention standards, including poor medical care and mistreatment of detainees, new internal records show."


Internal reports from ICE's office of Detention Oversight "paint an often bleak picture of the inside of the nation's immigration detention system, with detainees in some facilities lacking access to quality medical care or even clean underwear."


So much for creating a "truly civil" detention system.
