“We Don’t Feel OK Here” – Adelanto in the LA Times

Problems at the Adelanto Detention Facility, a focus of the IMB Immigration Issues Team, have hit the front page of the Los Angeles Times:  “‘We don’t feel OK here’: Detainee deaths, suicide attempts and hunger strikes plague California immigration facility.

Located in the high desert 85 miles northeast of Los Angeles, the Adelanto Detention Facility can house nearly 2,000 men and women. Officials say more than 73,000 detainees have passed through since it opened in 2011.

 

Among those held there are asylum seekers, people caught in immigration sweeps and those identified by authorities as potentially deportable after landing in jail. Some have lived in the U.S. for decades, others were sent to Adelanto soon after crossing the border.

 

The GEO Group, which operates dozens of private prisons and detention centers around the country, owns and operates the facility. GEO Group receives a fee of up to about $112 per day per detainee from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, with the city of Adelanto serving as a go-between.

 

Detainees and advocates have long complained of medical neglect, poor treatment by guards, lack of response to complaints and other problems. Government inspectors have also noted significant deficiencies at the facility — often related to medical care.

…Rivera Martinez pointed to his mouth, where he had a gap in his teeth, and his nose, which crooked to the left, to show Peñalosa damage he alleged was caused by guards.

 

Attorney Nicole Ramos told the judge she was struggling to communicate with Rivera Martinez because the facility had blocked her phone number. (ICE officials say they sometimes block phone numbers for security reasons.)

 

Peñalosa said he would take note of the complaints. But he also explained to Rivera Martinez that his court is charged with deciding immigration cases, not resolving problems within the facility.

 

Rivera Martinez came to the U.S. this spring in a caravan with dozens of asylum seekers from Central America.

 

He said he fled El Salvador after a gang killed his brother and kidnapped him, his wife and teenage daughter when they witnessed the slaying. After the family escaped, Rivera Martinez said, he learned that the gang had occupied his house.

 

“I can’t return home anymore,” he said.

 

 

Adelanto: Abuse of Immigrants in Detention-for-Profit

Indivisible Morongo Basin has been participating with other groups in protest of the situation at the Adelanto Detention Center, and updates can be found on our Immigration Issues page.  Below is a brief background on the ADC, a for-profit facility.    

Adelanto Detention Center is an Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention facility operated on behalf of the government by private prison company, GEO Group. ICE contracts account for 18% of GEO Group’s business, or $1.84 billion in 2015.

There are approximately 2,000 beds at Adelanto, and some detainees have been held for years. Currently there are quotas: the government guarantees to GEO that they will provide minimum 1,455 detainees to be housed at a cost of $111.92 per detainee, per day ($162,843 per day), and any additional detainees will be housed at a cost of $50 per detainee per day (potentially an additional $27,250 per day or $190,093 per day total, or $69 million per year total).

Conditions at Adelanto are not ideal and are not accountable to state review, being under the jurisdiction of the Department of Homeland Security. A review of conditions by the Homeland Security Advisory Council last fall rejected the ongoing use of private prison companies to detain immigrants, but to the contrary, the Trump administration has moved to expand private immigration detention, and signed a $110 million deal with GEO in April 2017 to build a new 1,000 bed detention facility in Texas.

Meanwhile, six people incarcerated at Adelanto for immigration matters have died while held there, including three within three months in 2017. Causes of death include internal bleeding (Sergio Alonso Lopez); complications following a suicide attempt (Osmar Epifanio Gonzalez-Gadba); acute coronary syndrome (Vicente Cácares-Maradiaga); cancer that went undiagnosed for two years (Raul Ernesto Morales-Ramos); pneumonia (Fernando Dominguez-Valdivia) and a heart attack (Jose Manuel Azurida-Hernandez).

In protest of the conditions, unrealistic bail, and poor treatment, detainees who arrived as asylum seekers in the 2017 Caravan from Central America began a hunger strike. The “Adelanto 9” are now the Adelanto 8 following the deportation of one of the hunger strikers.

Keep updated on continued punitive and retaliatory measures used against detainees in response to legal protests supporting the strikers and ways that you can help on our Immigration Issues page.

IMB Participates In Immigration Actions in the Coachella Valley

Members of Indivisible Morongo Basin went down to Cathedral City last Wednesday night to support a motion making that city the Coachella Valley’s first official sanctuary city, which was approved by the City Council by a 3-2 vote.

“While other desert cities such as Coachella and Palm Springs have unofficially operated as sanctuary cities, Cathedral City moved towards becoming the first in the region to publicly proclaim that it will not utilize city funds or resources to enforce federal immigration laws,” according to KESQ.

“The motion was passed after about three hours of public comments from residents on both sides of the issue. Chambers were so full the fire marshall had to be called when the room reached capacity. Dozens of people waited in the lobby and even outside. The meeting was played on a small speaker that was amplified with a cone so others could hear.”

Our congratulations to our sister group Courageous Resistance Palm Springs and Other Desert Cities, and to the many desert citizens and other groups that worked so hard in coalition for this important step forward!

The IMB Immigration Team also worked in coalition to sponsor the May 1 rally at the Indio Border Patrol Station, and our members traveled down to the low desert to join nearly 100 demonstrators at the protest.

“The rally, dubbed ‘Stop Deporting & Separating Families,’ criticized enforcement policies that treat undocumented immigrants like convicted felons and rhetoric that paints all immigrants as criminals,” per USA Today.

A couple of agents came out of the station and ended up having an informal exchange with demonstrators that remained courteous and informative.
