A rare look inside Tacoma's Northwest Detention Center

CENTER OF DETENTION, PART 1: The building could be any other industrial warehouse on Tacoma’s Tideflats, if it weren’t for the razor wire surrounding it. The man could be any other middle-aged father living in Pierce County, if he weren’t facing deportation. An immigration lockup. An illegal immigrant. Two lives intertwined by a common, tangled thread: U.S. immigration policy.
