Georgia Detention Watch
CCA to close Gainesville facility at end of year
GDW statement on pending closure of NGDC
For years, Georgia Detention Watch has been organizing to improve the conditions for detained immigrants and expose the injustices of immigration detention in Georgia. The announcement of the pending closure of Corrections Corporation of America's North Georgia Detention Center (NGDC) is significant and long overdue. What concerns us is that the remaining immigrants detained at NGDC will likely be transferred to two other Georgia-based detention centers, Irwin County Detention Center and Stewart Detention Center. These two facilities have been shamefully named among the 10 worst immigration detention centers in the United States. We find this unacceptable and will only use the announcement of NGDC's closure as fuel to expose and close Irwin County and Stewart Detention Centers next.
