Immigrant kids say they were beaten at detention center, tied to chairs by staff
June 21, 2018



(NATIONAL) – Immigrant kids locked up at a Virginia detention center say they were beaten, left naked in cells and strapped to chairs by guards, according to a New York Daily News report based on a federal court case.

The case was filed on behalf of an unidentified undocumented 17-year-old boy from Mexico, one of around 30 unaccompanied minors being held at the Shenandoah Valley Juvenile Center in Virginia.

Items from the report:

…….The 17-year old was transferred from a New York Center to Virginia for alleged violent behavior.

…….What he said he found in Virginia were prison-like conditions with cells, no privacy from guards to use the bathroom, one hour of recreation time per day, racist taunts (such as being called a “Mexican monkey”) physical hitting as well as harsh punishments.

…….The lawsuit claims several immigrant detainees reported being stripped of their clothes, occasionally including their underwear...one boy was punished by being tied to a chair for hours and other children were put in restraints for long periods of time.

…….The legal action alleges that the mental health of the children, some of whom have suffered trauma in their native countries or on the road to the U.S., is not being cared for despite diagnoses and suicide attempts. “Kill yourself already,” one unidentified child was allegedly told by staff at Shenandoah.

…….Allegations of abuse of immigrant children were also filed against the Shiloh Treatment Center in Texas, where staff reportedly used powerful psychotropic drugs as a sort of “chemical straightjacket,” to handle kids who were not behaving .

…….It is alleged the drugs were administered without parental approval and raised the risk of diabetes and suicide for the young children, according to filings by the Center for Human Rights & Constitutional Law.
