Immigration detention is the practice of holding people who are subject to immigration control in custody while they wait to either enter or be removed from the country. Over 30,000 people are detained in immigration detention centres every year for a variety of different reasons. They may be asylum seekers waiting for their claim to be accepted or denied, people who have outstayed their visa or foreign nationals waiting to be deported. Whatever the circumstances, being held in prison conditions without a time limit causes extreme anxiety and stress, and those who are held in custody should be treated with care and respect.
Unfortunately, cases of misconduct by immigration officers and others working at detention centres is not uncommon and it is possible to make a claim for compensation if you have been subject to abuse or misconduct whilst detained.
