Many people who come to the United States from other countries do so out of desperation.

During their time in such facilities, they may continue to feel at risk rather than finding the safe relief they had initially hoped for.

Even US citizens can end up in immigration detention

Being detained by authorities can be an anxiety-inducing situation for anyone.

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.

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.

Sometimes, immigration detention issues intersect with criminal charges.
