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. 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 are not uncommon and it is possible to make a claim for compensation if you have been subject to abuse or misconduct whilst detained.
