Groups bash U.S. healthcare for detained immigrants

AP/Yahoo News, March 18, 2009
U.S. immigration authorities routinely delay, deny, or botch medical care for detained immigrants in poorly equipped facilities nationwide, according to separate reports released by two advocacy groups. Human Rights Watch and the Florida Immigrant Advocacy Center blame the problems on unskilled or indifferent staff, overcrowding, bureaucratic red tape, language barriers, and limited services available to detainees of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
