Imprisoned Justice: Inside Two Immigrant Detention Centers in Georgia
Mercer Law School, Courtroom
Guest Speaker Azadeh Shahshahani, Legal & Advocacy Director, Project South
1 hour of CLE is available for $5 – registration and payment will be at the door
In May 2017, Project South and the Penn State Law Center for Immigrants' Rights Clinic published a report, "Imprisoned Justice: Inside Two Georgia Immigrant Detention Centers," in collaboration with a special student project of Mercer Law School and other organizations. The report is based on interviews with more than 70 detained immigrants, immigration attorneys, and tours of the Stewart Detention Center and the Irwin County Detention Centers. It shines light on conditions inside these two facilities and recommends that they be closed. Hear Azadeh Shahshahani, Legal & Advocacy Director with Project South, talk about immigration detention in the US and findings of the report. Read the full report here.
