WASHINGTON, July 11 (Reuters) - Lawmakers in the U.S. House of Representatives said on Thursday they have sent letters seeking documents and information from three companies responsible for detaining illegal immigrants arrested by U.S. border agents.

The House Oversight Committee and the House Subcommittee on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties sent letters to CoreCivic, Geo Group Inc. and DC Capital Partners LLC seeking information about the facilities they operate under contract from the U.S. government.
