Detainees continue to fight for their rights from behind bars

As an immigrant in America, you face many threats to your safety and security, and may even suffer imprisonment for relatively small infractions of the law. In many cases, authorities detain immigrants simply because they are in the country without proper documentation. If you or someone you love suffers detention, now is the time to start fighting for your rights, not time to give up.

Recently, a number of detainees at a center here in Georgia filed a suit claiming that the facility operated under inhumane conditions and that detainees held in the facility are compelled to perform hard labor by illegal means. According to the suit, detainees face threats of physical harm and solitary confinement as punishment for refusing to perform labor and are regularly denied basic necessities.

While it still remains to be seen whether the court will side with the detainees or allow the facility to continue to operate under these alleged conditions, a judge recently denied a request to dismiss the suit, made by the facility operator. This is a long way from a full legal victory, but it does demonstrate that courts do listen to the voices of detainees if they can make a compelling case for illegal or grossly inhumane treatment.

If you or someone you love faces detention, you must use the resources that you have available to fight against unfair treatment. A strong legal strategy and the guidance of an understanding legal counsel can help you see your options clearly and protect your rights to fair treatment, whether you are currently detained or not. Do not wait to begin building your protections today; stand up for your own fair treatment and the fair treatment of all people.
