2 More Deaths in Private Prisons

An ICE detainee at the Eloy detention center in Arizona passed away on Sunday, after having complained of shortness of breath and being transported to a hospital.  Pablo Gracida-Conte had been in CCA custody prior to his death.

And in Mississippi, a prisoner at the GEO-Group operated Eastern MS Correctional Facility took his own life a few days ago.  The 27-year-old's death comes amid numerous reports of serious violations of human rights coming out of the facility.
