Prisoners dying in Trump’s privatised ICE prisons

 
This 30 July 2019 video about Georgia in the USA says about itself:
ICE denied conditions in their for-profit facility. Then people started dying
A 44-year-old immigrant from Mexico died last week at Stewart Detention Center, one of the largest immigration jails in the United States and one that has been plagued by allegations of neglect and abuse for years. Pedro Arriago-Santoya was the fourth person in just two years to die at Stewart — a private immigration jail owned by CoreCivic.
Azadeh Shahshahani, legal and advocacy director at Project South and the former president of the National Lawyers Guild, explains that she and other advocates in Georgia have spent the past 10 years demanding that Stewart Detention Center be shut down, citing a laundry list of medical neglect, detainee deaths and abuses of solitary confinement. In particular, she says migrants at Stewart are subjected to forced labor, often working for $1 to $4 per day, and unable to object to the conditions of their detention for fear of severe punitive response by guards.
