Conditions May Improve at Detainee Center

by Andria Simmons

Atlanta Journal Constitution

June 5, 2010

New menus. Redesigned living areas. Bingo nights. Dance classes. Continental breakfasts. Self-serve beverage barsThese aren't features of some swanky new hotel.

They are among a host of new amenities that Immigration and Customs Enforcement is considering at two immigration detention facilities in Georgia.

The 502-bed North Georgia Detention Center in Gainesville and the Stewart Detention Center in Lumpkin, which can house 1,700 detainees, are among nine ICE detention facilities nationwide slated for upgraded living conditions and loosened restrictions. The proposal has riled some, but others are calling for the changes to be implemented across-the-board at all detention centers.

Cobb County immigration activist D.A. King said ICE is creating a "Club Fed for illegals who are not able to escape apprehension." He believes the move is an effort by the Obama administration to appease pro-immigrant groups like the ACLU and the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials.

ICE spokeswoman Gillian Brigham said the improvements were recommended by Corrections Corp. of America, a private company that runs several ICE detention facilities. They are being evaluated and have not yet been implemented.

“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”

Is it just me, or is the way the article is written feels like the author wants people to be angry about these improvements?

I don't know.. even with the listed improvements I find it hard to believe that it will be like living at some swanky new hotel.. :unsure:

I'd have to see blueprints before I become outraged.. if ever.
