Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Deportation by Default

Rate this Entry

Human Rights Watch has released a 98-page report that documents the plight of mentally ill immigrants that are caged in the immigration detention system.  The report is entitled Deportation by Default: Mental Disability, Unfair Hearings, and Indefinite Detention.

The following is a synapses:

"This 98-page report says that immigrants with mental disabilities are
often unjustifiably detained for years on end, sometimes with no legal
limits. The report documents case after case in which people with mental
disabilities were prevented from making claims against deportation -
including claims of US citizenship - because they were unable to
represent themselves. Some of the people interviewed for the report did
not know their own names, were delusional, could not tell time, or did
not know that deportation meant removal from the United States."

Read the report.
