A coalition of civil liberties and immigrant rights groups plans to hold a vigil outside a federal immigration detention center in southwest Georgia.
The vigil Friday morning will be the fifth annual gathering organized by Georgia Detention Watch outside the Stewart Detention Center in Lumpkin.
Organizers say the focus of this year's vigil will be the impact of detention on the families of detainees, especially the children. Family members of past detainees are set to speak during the vigil. Other speakers are set to include representatives of civil liberties and immigrant rights groups and a former employee of Corrections Corporation of America, the private company that runs the detention center on behalf of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
