Default Immigration prisons have multiple problems

(Hello, moderators, most of the material at the link is about medical neglect. Should this be in the medical sub-forum?)

Human rights organizations have interviewed "detainees" at "detention centers" and gone over death records.

Problems include grievance forms being available only in English and Spanish.

Thank you for posting this.

FWIW, I'd say this belongs in medical only because this forum is called "Criminal Immigration Issues" and many people in immigration detention have no criminal charges or history. Being in the country without documentation is a civil not a criminal offense, but that can still get you locked up -- with no right to appointed counsel since you aren't charged with a crime.

I have often wondered if the name of this thread could be amended, in order to clearly include all immigration-related incarceration. Or perhaps another thread in the US forums to deal simply with immigration detention centers. It's a pretty important piece of the incarceration pie and almost certain to grow over the next few years.

“Subpar medical care has contributed to nearly half of the death cases we have analyzed nationally, and substandard medical care has been evident in nearly ninety per cent of the cases”

https://www.newyorker.com/news/news-...ention-centers

What does "subpar" mean?

Quote:
The Project South report describes a Chinese man with a broken leg who waited a month for X-rays, and a Nigerian man with “lumps in his chest,” who told a Project South interviewer that “blood had begun discharging from my breast. When I requested medical care, sometimes no one would reply. I was not given medical care until ICE later approved it. When I reached out for medical help, I was placed in solitary.”
