Freedom for Immigrants maintains the most up-to-date map of the U.S. immigration detention system. The map keeps track of the more than 200 immigrant prisons and jails in the U.S. as well as the programs in our visitation network. Click on the map to learn more. According to federal government data, Texas (15,852), California (6,527), Arizona (3,869), Georgia (3,717), and Louisiana (3,143) are the top five states with the largest number of people in U.S. immigration detention per day. It costs more taxpayer dollars to detain people in Washington ($145.19 per person per day) and California ($144.35) than any other state. This includes the cost of guards, healthcare, and other direct costs.

Wow, 1 in Grants Pass - now zero, and 28 in The Dalles, now 25. And the average seems to be $150ish per day. We need to parse precisely where this money goes, because I can't imagine using that much in resources per day, let alone in a week. Gross mismanagement, as always from incarceration facilities.

"healthcare"

Immigrants have a right to health care, but you don't.

Depending on your outlook, you're either disgusted than immigrants in camps have a right to health care, or you're disgusted that regular Americans do not have a right to health care.

And your party affiliation predicts your outlook with stunning accuracy!

Funny how that works.

Does this count the Secret Death Tunnels under Walmart again? Or are we just being lied to all the time?

Detainees. Legal immigrants do not get free healthcare.
