Strikers in two centers owned by the same company allege mistreatment, call for an end to deportations
Hunger-strikers protesting poor treatment and deportation at an immigration detention center in Tacoma, Wash., have accused a private security firm that runs the facility of threatening retaliation against participants, days after a second strike broke out at another detention facility in Conroe, Texas, run by the same company.
“Guards threatened at least two detainees with deportation for their participation in the strike,” Maru Mora Villalpando, CEO of Latino Advocacy, told Al Jazeera. “We have also heard from people who said the guards told them they would be force-fed if the hunger strike continued.”
