Facts: Immigration Detention in 2008

In 2008, we are torturing immigrants who apply for asylum. We segregate them until they develop Stockholm syndrome, we deny them showers more than 3 times a week, we deny them fresh fruits and vegetables, we deny them medical care, but we house them in prisons across America without any convictions. We house them for years on end this way -- breaking all the human rights laws of the Geneva Convention; we keep their children in prison too; and we even deport U.S. citizens. These people are denied access to counsel, due process, and all the rights outlined in our Constitution which covers ANYONE inside our borders. Then we worry about Homeland Security? And many of the people we torture who wait for these people are U.S. citizens. I am one...and this is what I've learned about the for-profit prison system of CCA, that exploits immigrants for corporate profits. Today we build more prisons with taxpayer's money, and we have half the immigrants than last year.
