Undocumented immigrants, many who've been caught breaking into America, and now currently detained in U.S. Detention facilities, have filed a lawsuit this Monday to criticize what they call as shoddy medical care and the authorities failure to provide better accommodations for those with disabilities.

The lawsuit was filed by disability and civil rights advocates in the U.S. District Court. Immigrants recanted punishments that involved isolation and being denied of recommended medical treatment, including surgery. There are others who have been denied wheelchairs and one deaf detainee who communicates through American Sign Language was refused an interpreter. 

Such problems are harming differently-abled immigrants and threaten anyone who is under the Immigration and Custom's Enforcement's rule. Monica Porter, a staff attorney who represents the Disability Rights Advocates, says that the institution's problems harm detainees that have ended up in one of the 50,000 detention beds, with some getting sick and others isolated from other detainees. 

Tim Fox, co-executive director of the Civil Rights Education and Enforcement Center stated that "ICE cannot simply contract with third parties to operate its detention centers and then wash its hands of the deplorable, unlawful conditions in those detention centers."

ICE declined to comment on the lawsuit. However, an agency official said that comprehensive medical care is being provided to all detainees. This includes dental and 24-hour emergency care. There are even studies that show about 1% of detainees being held in segregated housing at a given time. 

On behalf of 15 immigrants, hailing from countries that include Sudan and Mexico, this lawsuit was filed with nonprofit organizations that seek to represent immigrant detainees across the country. The lawsuit cites problems particularly present at eight facilities that include a private center located in Adelanto California, and the Teller County Jail in Colorado. 

Wanting to see changes in both medical treatment and policies for immigrants, the advocates filed this lawsuit, seeking the release of immigrants that are currently under alternative programs. 

Advocates said they want to see changes in medical treatment and policies for the immigrants, who are fighting deportation, and the release of immigrants under alternative programs.

According to ICE, the number of immigrants that are under their institution has grown in recent years with an average of 55,000 immigrants ending up in detention each day.
