Two Texas detention centers are among the 10 worst in the country for human rights violations, according to a series of reports released Thursday by Detention Watch Network, a national group advocating reform of the US immigration and deportation system.
Our immigration detention system is in crisis, Andrea Black, executive director of the network, said at a press conference organized by advocacy group Grassroots Leadership in Austin. Black said the reports detail inadequate medical care and nutrition and inmates being confined in crowded cells for up to 23 hours a day.
The network's reports claim that immigrants' human rights are being violated at that the Houston Processing Center and the Polk County Detention Center. The two facilities in total house about 1,700 immigrants and are privately run under contracts with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Carl Rusnok, a spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said officials from ICE are looking into the network's findings and have offered to meet with the writers of the report.
"ICE is in the process of fully reviewing the reports," Rusnok said in an email. "However, it is disappointing that the reports appear to be built primarily on anonymous allegations that cannot be investigated or substantiated."

This is why most Americans want them sent back home to the more “humane” sewers they crawled out of. The jackasses who conducted this goofy “study” needs to talk to these “immigrants” and ASK THEM where they would rather be. Morons!
If you don’t like the conditions of the detention centers, DON'T TRY TO SNEEK INTO OUR COUNTRY!!!!
Maybe we should just put them all in a Holliday Inn and give them three meals a day and healthcare to go with it.
No wonder we’re in debt up to our eyeballs.
We need to do something to dissuade these people from coming here.
So, put ‘em in those nice, open FEMA camps. Oh- wait...they’re saving those for us...
I don’t really care. Perhaps this is one time where I’m kinda glad we finished first.
yes, but for at least 99% of these illegal immigrants we should deport them much faster so they don’t have to spend any time on our dime in our less-than-Hilton facilities
When is the treatment of American citizens in Mexico and their rights vs US treatment of Mexicans going to be an issue when we discuss “immigration” and “amnesty” ?
Ever hear of reciprocal aggrements ? These are arranged to protect the rights of American citizens working or living in other countries.
Why is it when it comes to citizens of other countries we are required to offer them the same privledges as we do to US citizens? But when it comes to US citizens who get in trouble or attempt to do business in other countries they do not get the same treatment their citizens get.
Americans cant own coast land in Mexico. And get no title to it elsewhere. If they run out of cash theyll get unceremoniously sent back or put in jail untill some relative comes up with the fresh. Thats just for starters as for granting them voting privledges yea lets give Mexican citizens that right when American citizens vote in their elections .
Then perhaps GITMO would suit them better. Perhaps Mexico will open a special jail their for them so they will have no reason to cry about the inhumanity of Americans.
It would be cheaper to deport them. But that accomplishes little or nothing as long as we have open borders. They just come right back. Again and again and again.
I think hiring airconditioned buses and driving them to their border and letting them off is a good idea.
