Retention Memo for Onsite Investigation at Pine Prairie Detention Center in Pine Prairie, Louisiana

CRCL received a complaint alleging abuses of the civil rights and civil liberties of individuals in the custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) at the Pine Prairie Detention Center in Pine Prairie, Louisiana. CRCL reviewed several incidents where detainees expressed concern with general conditions at the facility resulting in wide-spread grievances in the areas of due process, discrimination based on national origin, and denial of recreation. More specifically, complaints involved allegations related to: quarantine and exposure to airborne illnesses resulting in denial of recreation,  violations of due process rights, national origin discrimination, prolonged segregation, physical, verbal, and mental abuse, and denial of legal access.
