AI Generated Image prompt: Black and white comic book style drawing of a sad man waiting in a migration detention centre to be forcibly deported to a plane with direction to Brazil.

JRS visits people in immigration detention across Europe. We witness detention’s negative impact on detainees and the effects of flawed migration systems. By exposing some of it, we hope to gain support in our call to end immigration detention. Stories are real. Names and other details were adapted for people’s protection.

For the fourth issue of this report series, we will focus the spotlight on Portugal, the issue of lack of disproportionality in detention application and the story of John.
