Nonpartisan Report: U.S. Immigration enforcement riddled with inhumane treatment, and denial of due processPublished: Mar 18, 2011 10:30 am
The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights has compiled a comprehensive 155-page report that was based on evidence obtained from six immigration detention centers located in Arizona and Texas.

The Obama administration was provided with a draft of the report in August 2010. The administration's response was to defend their approach toward detention and deportation.
