Protesters Demonstrate Outside Immigrant Detention Center

ELIZABETH — On Sunday, protesters demonstrated outside an Elizabeth warehouse building that was converted into the privately-administered Elizabeth Detention Center, where immigrants are held while waiting for the federal government to determine their immigration status or while awaiting repatriation. The demonstrators are calling for the end to the system of mass detention of immigrants, and for humane conditions for immigrants in detention as part of a national campaign, “Dignity, Not Detention: Preserving Human Rights and Restoring Justice,” led by the Detention Watch Network.
