Advocates decry inhumane conditions of Mexico's migrant detention centers after fire kills 38
The victims of a fire inside a Mexican migrant detention center Monday night were trapped behind padlocked doors at an overcrowded jail that filled with smoke as they fruitlessly yelled for help. At least 38 people died as result of the fire inside Estancia Provisional de Ciudad Juárez, where they were detained. It is estimated to have a capacity of 60 people, said Blanca Navarrete, the director of Comprehensive Human Rights in Action in Ciudad Juárez. Authorities have said at least 68 people were killed and injured in the facility. In addition, about a dozen women had been detained at the facility right before the fire broke out, Navarrete said.
