ABSTRACT

With Liberty and Justice for All: The State of Civil Rights at Immigration Detention Facilities   [open pdf - 6MB]

"This Statutory Enforcement Report examines the civil rights and constitutional concerns that the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights (Commission) 'raised with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and its component [agencies] over the treatment of adult and minor [immigrant] detainees [who are being] held under federal law in detention centers across the country.' Specifically, this report analyzes the constitutional issues surrounding DHS's treatment of detained immigrants as well as other selected federal agencies' efforts to comply with established Performance Based National Detention Standards (PBNDS), the Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 (PREA), and the federal standards for detaining unaccompanied minor children."
