Clio Sady, a professional artist, and her father, Steve Sady, a federal public defendant, volunteered with the pro bono legal team in November 2014. They published the following visual essay about the detention center in Artesia, using Clio’s drawing and courtroom sketches (photography was not permitted in the center).
