Why are children dying in immigration detention centers?

Most Louisiana residents, and others across the country who follow U.S. news headlines, are aware that tens of thousands of immigrants have been traveling to the nation's borders, in the hope of escaping lives of poverty and danger in exchange for safer and better futures for themselves and their families. The problem is that not every immigrant achieves his or her goals, and in many situations, it is because they or their family members suffer injury, illness or death while being held in immigration detention facilities. Recently, several children have died in such places, prompting U.S. Customs and Border Protection to order medical evaluations of every child in its custody.

Lack of legal representation problematic in immigration detention

U.S. immigration laws are complex. They are constantly being updated, making it difficult for the typical person, much less someone with a language barrier, to stay updated on such matters. This can cause high levels of stress for anyone in Louisiana facing immigration detention situations.

Immigration detention is not this man's only problem

Louisiana immigrants who arrived to this state without proper paperwork in order undoubtedly understand what it is like to live life, looking over a shoulder. If a police officer or other member of authority approaches, it may cause stress levels to soar, thinking an arrest may be imminent. Sometimes, immigration detention issues intersect with criminal charges.  

Know your rights as a documented or undocumented immigrant

Xenophobia and anti-immigrant sentiment have been increasingly apparent in United States culture and in the media recently. Stoked, in part, by politicians seeking reelection, fear of immigration impacting the culture and economy in the United States has led to enforcement crackdowns at the border and across the country.
