More than fifty detainees have launched a hunger strike at the GEO immigration detention facility in Aurora. The inmates, currently under quarantine for mumps, refused to eat their breakfast in protest today, March 6.

Danielle Jefferis, a civil-rights attorney representing one of the participating detainees pro-bono for Novo Legal Group, says they want to draw attention to conditions at the facility and get more answers about the quarantine.
