A woman chose to be deported from Arizona instead of continue to receive no medical care inside the detention center. Read about her in this article by Meghan Rhoad of the Human Rights Watch: http://www.rhrealitycheck.org/blog/2011/05/03/immigration-detention-reformmatter-life-death
We have heard terrible stories. Inside Florence Correctional Center, an entire unit requested that one of the men being held with them receive medical and mental health attention. The men being held with him were afraid of him and for him. Weeks went by. He eventually pulled one of his own teeth out. Only once he was covered in blood, was he taken away to receive care.
Medical care in detention is a matter of basic human decency. The United States should honor the dignity of every one.
