Penn State Law, and Project South. Imprisoned Justice: Inside Two Georgia Immigrant Detention Centers. Report. Center for Immigrants’ Rights Clinic, Penn State Law. May 2017.

This report provides a first-hand account of conditions at the Stewart Detention Center and the Irwin County Detention Center, both located in Georgia, through interviews with detained immigrants and their attorneys. The living conditions in both detention centers neither comply with the international standards of detention nor do they comply with ICE’s Performance-Based National Detention Standards, which are designed to protect detainees and ensure a certain standard of conditions in detention facilities.The authors make numerous recommendations for improving conditions for immigrants in detention.
