Call to action: torture of Cameroonian detainees at Adams Correctional Center

By Nell Hahn

Freedom for Immigrants and the Southern Poverty Law Center have filed a complaint with the Office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, Department of Homeland Security and the Office of the Inspector General, on the torture of Cameroonian detainees at Adams Correctional Center in Mississippi. The torture was to coerce them into signing deportation orders, and and accept the use of fake travel documents being to deport them. A downloadable copy of the complaint is available here and in the links to the right, under Documents. Please read and discuss the complaint, and send it to Congressional representatives, to members of the press, and to anyone else who will listen.
