The Minister spoke with reporters at the National Security Conference in the Caribbean on Tuesday morning.
"There is no evidence that came to my mind that suggests that any one group of nationals are targeted by the Detention Centre or persons in the Detention Centre. There are several nationalities in the Detention Centre and there's no evidence that suggest that any one group is being targeted."
Minister Dillon was also asked whether there is overcrowding at the Aripo-based Detention Centre.
"I can't say at this point in time whether it is overcrowded or not."
Last week, Social Activist Khafra Kambon and Immigration Attorney Farid Scoon claimed there was a rogue clique of Immigration Officers operating in the department and people of African descent are being targeted.
