The Landscape of Immigration Detention in the United States

Drawing on the most recent government data available to the public, the report details a complex network of over 600 detention sites. The research reveals that individuals are commonly held in privately operated and remotely located facilities, far away from family and legal support.  Please note these findings are particularly critical because the number of individuals held in U.S. custody is at an all-time high. Yet the government is trying to detain even more men, women, and children.
