• Conditions in detention are generally substandard and marred by allegations of abuse and poor access to procedural standards.

• Asylum seekers are sometimes held in “pre-removal” detention while their claims are processed.

• Depending on their nationality, asylum seekers can face severe discrimination, which observers argue is intended to serve as a method of deterrence.
