Abuse, Inhumane Conditions, Found at Prisons for Immigrants Run by Private Companies
ACLU
NEW YORK – On June 10, the American Civil Liberties Union and the ACLU of Texas released the report Warehoused and Forgotten: Immigrants Trapped in Our Shadow Private Prison Industry (see PDF), a devastating look into the secretive "Criminal Alien Requirement" or "CAR" prisons for immigrants. In a four-year investigation of five CAR prisons in Texas, our researchers found pervasive and disturbing patterns of neglect and abuse of the prisoners–all non-citizens, most of whom have been convicted only of immigration offenses (such as unlawfully reentering the country).
