Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

A little taste of what immigrants being held in the Stewart Detention Center are forced to endure.

Rate this Entry
The following video will give you a little taste of what the individuals who are being housed in Stewart have to endure prior to their deportation. As has been pointed out in the video, the legal issue of deportation in most instances is a civil matter, which does not involve the imposition of jail time, and yet these people are housed like hardened criminals.



Detention facilities across the country have varying quality standards. Although I have not been to the Stewart Detention facility, I regularly attend hearings in detention facilities and I am often shocked by the inhumane conditions that my clients are forced to endure while fighting to remain in the United States.


One such facility in Elizabeth, New Jersey



My client in the Elizabeth Detention Facility has established a credible fear that he will be persecuted if he is forcibly returned to his home country. He is awaiting his asylum hearing that has been scheduled in December.

He is also suffering from a medical condition that requires treatment. The Deportation Officer assigned to my client's case has been made aware on multiple occasions that he requires a specific medication to treat his condition, and yet after repeated requests my client still has not been afforded proper medical care.

I have requested that my client be released from custody in order to obtain the requisite care, but my request was denied in a standard form response, and no consideration was given to his health issue.

When I visited my client he appeared listless, and is having difficulty assisting in his defense. I am preparing a motion to terminate his case as a result. His trial is in December, and it is my hope that the Immigration Judge assigned to preside over my Client's matter will do justice.

Wish us luck.

    Stewart as mentioned is in the middle of no-where, is not convenient to the courts or the airport in Atlanta where many of the Eastern European detainess are flown out of.

    Another classic case of a community with no economic prospects and no talent or products to offer society getting involved in the Prison Industrial Complex. So now from my personal observation you have economically and socially challenged people of color with no training in law enforcement and particularly Immigration Enforcement making just slightly over minimum wage to insure that other socially and economically challenged immigrants don't "escape". How ridiculous.

    To sum it up we are taking people out of the work force, encarcerating them at tax payer expense and leaving thier US Citizen Family Members behind to scrape by and eventually land on Government Assistance.

    The only winners in this are the Companies who run these horrible facilites.
