¿Dónde Está la Biblioteca? It's a Damn Shame: Outdated, Inadequate, and Nonexistent Law Libraries in Immigrant Detention Facilities

Sarah E. Dunaway 
 
 
Abstract
 
This article proposes that all immigrant detainees should have meaningful access to a properly equipped law library. The article begins with an overview of the current lack of access to law libraries in immigrant detention facilities. The article then moves on to argue for a statutory right mandating that an immigrant detainee have meaningful access to a properly equipped law library. Finally, the article explores what it truly means to be a “properly equipped law library” and what level of access should be guaranteed to immigrant detainees.
