An excellent piece from NPR's All Things Considered:
December 5, 2005: Richard Rust died last year after he was detained by U.S. government agents -- not in a secret detention center in Iraq, but in a federal prison in Oakdale, La.
Evidence suggests that Rust, an immigrant from Jamaica, is not the only immigrant detainee who has died recently after Homeland Security arrested them. NPR also looked into the deaths of three other detainees. In each case, witnesses charge that some immigrants died after guards and medical staff failed to give them proper medical care. The incidents raise a question: Is there a pattern of medical neglect in Homeland Security's detention centers?
