The Carceral State of Arizona: The Human Cost of Being Confined

Run by private prison corporation, CoreCivic, Eloy Detention Center is located in Eloy, AZ, a small “prison town” located between Tucson and Phoenix. To be clear, the “detention center” is, in fact, a prison – an inhumane prison filled with migrants.

In August 2018, Advancement Project National Office conducted a stakeholder visit of Eloy Detention Center on behalf of and in partnership with Puente Human Rights Movement. The findings in this report are a result of this visit, an attempt at transparency and to hold those who run and manage Eloy Detention Center accountable.
