This report documents various serious abuses in Georgia detention centers requiring immediate action. For  the  reasons  set  forth  in  the  report,  the  conditions  documented  by   the  ACLU  of Georgia violate detainees’ constitutional and human rights as well as ICE standards.

These  findings also  confirm  the  problems  inherent to  detention  of  immigrants  in  privately  run detention  centers. There  is  deep-seated  tension  between  the  profit-making  aims  of  CCA and  Detention  Management,  LLC  and  what  the  American  values  of  justice  and  liberty   demand  – humane  conditions  for  those  detained  and  releasing  immigrants  who  pose  no  danger  or  flight risk.
