Henderson Detention Center Report"The Conditions of Immigration Detention in Nevada"

The Immigration Clinic releases a groundbreaking report titled “The Conditions of Immigration Detention In Nevada,” which provides evidence that conditions at the Henderson Detention Center violate many of ICE’s policies, including policies prohibiting abuse and discrimination and setting certain standards for medical care, attorney visits, law libraries, mail correspondence, and telephone access. The report also documents instances of coercion by ICE officers to sign legal documents that may result in deportation or prolong detention. The Immigration Clinic stands with other organizations in Nevada, including the ACLU of Nevada, Immigration Reform for Nevada, and the Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada, in demanding a closer look at detention conditions.
