Trauma at the Border: The Human Cost of Inhumane Immigration Policies

For this report, the Commission reopened our 2015 report on the condition of immigration detention centers, amid renewed concerns about worsening conditions. Based on media reports, government investigations, eyewitness accounts, and public testimony received by the Commission, the report details how the current Administration’s changes to asylum, the detention of children, and certain other immigration policies, practices, and procedures have created an unnecessary human and civil rights crisis at the southern border.
