Testimony - Immigration Detention Staff Attorney and Current VP of Immigration Policy at American Progress Tom Jawetz

This is a testimony from Immigration Detention Staff Attorney and current Vice President of Immigration Policy at American Progress (a progressive public policy research and advocacy organization) Tom Jawetz. The testimony basically describes the unnecessary and unjust environments and treatments detained immigrants have to endure in US Immigration Detention Centers. Mr. Jawetz primarily focuses on the inadequate health care in the detention facilities and specifically highlights the experience of a detainee named Francisco Castaneda. “I am here today to speak with you about a serious and growing problem in immigration detention- horribly inadequate health care that leads to unnecessary suffering and death”
