Complaint Demands Government Action on Inadequate Medical Care in Colorado Detention Center

As DHS ramps up efforts to expand its network of immigration detention facilities, reports continue to surface of deplorable conditions in detention, and limited access to adequate medical care. Unless immediate action is taken, immigrants will continue to perish in government custody.

On June 11, 2019, AILA and the American Immigration Council supplemented a complaint to government oversight bodies highlighting numerous examples of inadequate medical care in the Denver Contract Detention Facility, an immigration detention center in Aurora, Colorado. Call on Congress to demand accountability and consideration of alternatives to detention.
