Pinal County Jail makes list of 10 worst immigrant detention centers

Detained immigrants have even fewer rights then U.S. inmates in jails and prisons.  Detension centers are supposed to non-punitive administrative holding centers for individuals undergoing immigration proceedings.  The reality, though, is harsher than that.  Much harsher.  Detention Watch Netwrk just released a report citing 10 facilites with "sexual assault, substandard medical care, lack of due process and abysmal living conditions."  Not surprisingly, Arizona's Pinal County jail is one of the 10.
