Florida Immigrant Detention Database

The Florida Detention Database gathers complaints regarding conditions of confinement and access to counsel in Florida’s immigrant detention centers. For too long, there have been countless reports of inhumane and abusive conditions in Florida’s immigration detention centers.  

In order to capture a full picture of the systemic neglect within these facilities, the ACLU of Florida and the HOPE Public Interest Resource Center at the University of Miami School of Law have created the Florida Detention Database to track complaints and identify patterns of abuse, inadequate conditions and constitutional violations. The Florida Detention Database seeks to collect this information for further investigation and to serve as a resource to detained individuals and their families and other individuals and organizations advocating on their behalf.
