A Washington Post investigation has revealed many immigrants, who are detained by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, receive poor or substandard medical care.

The inquiry identified 83 people who died while in custody.

For more, Farai Chideya speaks with Dana Priest, who co-wrote the Washington Post series. We also hear from Ann Schofield Baker, the attorney for Amina Mudey — a former detainee from Somalia, who was heavily drugged against her will and suffered side effects from the medication.
