|DENVER (AP) — Immigrants who were detained at a suburban Denver facility
while they awaited deportation proceedings are suing the private

janitorial work, sometimes under threat of solitary confinement.|
They scrubbed toilets, mopped and swept floors, did laundry, and prepared and served meals, among other duties, according to attorneys who filed the lawsuit in October on behalf of nine current and former detainees.
On Monday, U.S. District Court Judge John L. Kane declined a request from the Florida-based GEO Group Inc. to dismiss the claims against it, allowing the federal lawsuit to proceed.

(Isaiah 42:22 KJV) But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivereth; for a spoil, and none saith, Restore.
