DWN’s New Report #ExposeandClose: One Year Later
Announcing the release of Detention Watch Network’s new report…
EXPOSE AND CLOSE: ONE YEAR LATER
The Absence of Accountability in Immigration Detention
While the debate over immigration reform rages in the halls of Congress, the moral and human rights crisis caused by the mas incarceration of immigrants has been largely ignored. In November of 2012, members of Detention Watch Network released the Expose and Close reports, highlighting the appalling conditions in ten of the worst immigration detention centers in the country. One year later, nothing has changed, and in some cases, conditions in detention have gotten worse. Expose and Close: One Year Later documents the current state of the immigration detention system which continues to be plagued by deaths and suicides, subpar medical and mental health care, inedible food, and arbitrary restrictions on visitation and access to legal resources.
