The weekend death of a Guatemalan woman who became ill at a detention center in Arizona with the most in-custody immigrant deaths in the U.S. is another example of inadequate care and poor practices at the privately run site, advocates for immigrants said this week. The 36-year-old woman died at a hospital near the Eloy Detention Center, which is among the largest immigrant lockups in the country and currently has 1,473 detainees, just shy of its capacity of 1,500.

Unable to find work and terrified by the street gangs that brazenly roamed the streets, Karen Zaldivar was one of tens of thousands of young people who fled Honduras in 2014. Caught trying to slip across the U.S.-Mexico border, she was promptly deported. Last year, Zaldivar set out again, but with a new destination: Mexico.

HIGH COURT DIVIDED ON IMMIGRANTS / HOUSTON CHRONICLE
A seemingly divided Supreme Court tried to figure out Wednesday whether the government can detain immigrants indefinitely without providing hearings. The justices heard argument in a class-action lawsuit brought by immigrants who have spent long periods in custody, including many who are legal residents of the United States or are seeking asylum. The issue for the court is whether people the government has detained while it is considering deporting them can make their case to a judge that they should be released. The case pits the Obama administration against immigration advocates,
