Undocumented Immigrants Await Deportation At Arizona Detention Centers

ELOY, AZ – JULY 30: A cactus and sign mark the entrance to the Eloy Detention Facility for illegal immigrants on July 30, 2010 in Eloy, Arizona. Most immigrants at the center, operated by the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA), are awaiting deportation or removal and return to their home countries, while some are interned at the facility while their immigration cases are being reviewed. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), in Arizona holds almost 3,000 immigrants statewide, all at the detention facilities in Eloy and nearby Florence. Arizona, which deports and returns more illegal immigrants than any other state, is currently appealing a judge’s ruling suspending controversial provisions of Arizona’s immigration enforcement law SB 1070.
