Any proof or just hear say, and does this mean no immigrants have even moved to GA?
Those held at the jail wear color-coded uniforms and are segregated, based on the crimes they have committed. The most violent criminals wear red, while the least violent wear blue.
ICE and CCA officials gave a reporter from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution a roughly hourlong tour of the jail. Dozens of detainees were observed quietly watching television, reading and making phone calls from large rooms where they sleep on bunk beds. Others are held in two-man quarters. Some of the detainees were playing soccer in a fenced-in courtyard. They also have access to Wii video games and library.
Detainees can voluntarily work for $1 to $3 a day cooking and cleaning, said Mike Swinton, the jail’s warden. They can save that money or spend it on MoonPies, pork rinds, chicken ramen noodles or other goods sold in the jail store.
Oscar Leon, 25, who lived in Norcross, spent two months in Stewart late last year before he was deported to Mexico. He said he was struck by how many detainees passed through Stewart. Hundreds leave each week, but buses routinely pull up to the jail, carrying more people to replace them, said the Phoenix High School graduate. Leon was sent to Stewart last year after pleading guilty to driving without a license in Georgia.
“It’s just like a well-oiled machine, you know,” Leon said in a telephone interview last month from the jail. “One in, one out. One in, one out. It’s amazing how many people come in and out in one week.”
GA has the largest population of ICE detainees facing deportation anywhere in the US, even TX.
