60 PERCENT OF ICE DETAINEES TESTED HAVE CORONAVIRUS
- Newsweek
hough only a small number of those detained by U.S. Immigration Customs and Enforcement (ICE) have been tested for the coronavirus, 60 percent of those tested came up positive for the disease.

Recent data from ICE indicates that 425 individuals have tested positive for coronavirus. However, only 705 detainees have received the tests out of approximately 40,000 total individuals. That works out to just over 1 percent of all detainees being tested for coronavirus. However, 60 percent of those tested have tested positive.

Cases were reported in detention centers across 16 states including Michigan, Georgia, Louisiana and Texas.

"One of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) highest priorities is the health and safety of those in our custody," the agency said in an April statement. "Detainees are being monitored and tested for COVID-19 in line with CDC guidance, and in conjunction with the recommendations of state and local health partners."

However, because of the threat of community spread coronavirus within the detention centers, advocacy groups have called for the release of certain individuals with underlying health problems or who have not been accused of violent crimes.

Newsweek reached out to ICE for comment.

Internal ICE Reviews Of Two Immigrant Deaths Stoke Fears About COVID-19 Care

When Carlos Mejia-Bonilla was detained by immigration authorities a few years ago, he told the health care staff at the Hudson County Correctional Facility in New Jersey that he was taking medicine for a range of conditions, including diabetes, anemia, high blood pressure and cirrhosis of the liver.

Ten weeks later, he died of gastrointestinal bleeding.

ICE’s Lack of Transparency About COVID-19 in Detention Will Cost Lives - ACLU
ICE’s untimely and incomplete information also extends to its public website about COVID-19, which includes a section on confirmed cases of the virus in immigration detention. Daily analysis of ICE’s information reveals several reasons for deep concern. Although ICE has reported the number of people who have tested positive for COVID-19 at specific facilities, it has not provided information as to how many people at each facility have been tested — critical information to understand how widespread the virus is.

It also appears that there may be serious irregularities with ICE’s data. For example, ICE has posted data where the additional number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in detention is greater than the additional number of people tested — a mathematical impossibility.

Agreed. As I've said many times, ICE has to go. In fact, it would not be a bad idea to dismantle the whole CBP/ICE system under DHS, and create something that's actually accountable.

We still torture children. Nobody does a damn thing, ICE not only has to go but IF we replace it there will have to be major changes.

I said years ago fire ALL police in America (not all at once obviously) and rehire new police forces, let all former apply but use rigid psychological testing as in temperament and racism, in fact make that a higher level requirement than physical training or equal at least. Then you will have an entirely different world.

ICE lacks coronavirus tests for immigrant detainees

WASHINGTON — A top immigration official for the Trump administration admitted on Tuesday that immigrants are not systematically tested for the coronavirus when they are apprehended, nor when they are removed from the United States.

The first of those admissions elicited a shocked reaction from Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., a ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which had convened a hearing on the effects of the pandemic on the incarcerated.

Unmasked guard stood next to detainee as ICE claimed in court it's taking proper safety precautions

The detained immigrant who testified in a virtual court hearing as part of an ongoing lawsuit demanding the release of detainees from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody almost didn’t have to make the case for why he and others should be released amid the novel coronavirus pandemic, because the agency did a pretty good job of it for him. “The ICE officer standing next to him as he spoke was not wearing protective gear,” Miami Herald reports.

Deivys Perez Valladares, a 25-year-old diabetic man currently jailed at the Krome Processing Center in Miami-Dade, said during the virtual hearing that ICE’s practices—or lack thereof—during the pandemic are putting him and others at dire risk of infection. “Yes I am scared,” he said according to Miami Herald. “Like right now, the ICE official who is here with me, he doesn’t have a mask on.” According to the report, Perez Valladares said other guards at the facility have also worked without protective gear.

Detained migrants say they were forced to clean COVID-infected ICE facility - NBC News
LOS ANGELES — Asylum-seeking migrants locked up inside an Arizona Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention center with one of the highest number of confirmed COVID-19 cases say they were forced to clean the facility and are "begging" for protection from the virus, according to a letter obtained exclusively by NBC News.

"This is a life or death situation," said a translation of their message, dated May 18, and sent to the Florence Immigrants & Refugees Rights Project, a legal advocacy group that has filed a lawsuit on behalf of migrants in the facility.

The migrants appealed for help to the advocacy group from inside one of 24 "tanks," which hold 120 men each, in the La Palma Correctional Center outside of Phoenix, which is operated for ICE by the for-profit company CoreCivic.

Some better news...

Federal judge rules ICE courthouse arrests in New York state are illegal - NBC News
The ruling comes in a case filed by New York Attorney General Letitia James and Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez in September that sought to block ICE from conducting civil immigration arrests at the state's courthouses.

For years, local officials, including police chiefs and state prosecutors, have said that immigration enforcement operations inside courthouses have hampered their ability to investigate and prosecute crimes. Immigration advocacy organizations like the American Civil Liberties Union have mounted campaigns to track and end ICE courthouse arrests, arguing they undermine the justice system.

...

"It is one thing for the state courts to try to deal with the impediments brought on by a pandemic," he wrote, "and quite another for them to have to grapple with disruptions and intimidations artificially imposed by an agency of the federal government in violation of long-standing privileges and fundamental principles of federalism and of separation of powers.”

Border officials spent emergency humanitarian funds on dirt bikes, dogs and enforcement programs, according to government report

By Nick Miroff
6/11/2020, 7:01:45 p.m.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection used emergency funding meant for migrant families and children to pay for dirt bikes, canine supplies, computer equipment and other enforcement related-expenditures, according to a report published Thursday by the U.S. Government Accountability Office.

Congress last June approved a $4.6 billion emergency funding bill to cope with an unprecedented influx of Central American families and children at the Mexico border that left U.S. agents overwhelmed and detention cells dangerously cramped.

The supplemental bill included a line item for about $112 million in “consumables and medical care,” but CBP used some of the money to pay for enforcement-related hardware and expenses that were not authorized, according to the GAO, the federal government’s leading oversight agency.

CBP spent some of the funds on motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles, boats and other transportation equipment, as well as supplies and services for CBP’s canine program, vaccines for CBP personnel, computer upgrades, printers and security camera systems, among other expenses, the report found.

The GAO report did not indicate how much money was misused, but it said the expenditures were a violation of the law.

Immigrants stage a hunger strike for Black lives inside ICE detention facility

As they watched the news on TV in late May, the men in locked in Unit C of the Mesa Verde immigrant detention center in Bakersfield, California, began to see the same images as the rest of the world: cops across the United States beating protestors, reports detailing the police homicide of Breonna Taylor, and the horrific footage of a Minneapolis police officer suffocating George Floyd to death.

Earlier that month, Donavan Grant, a Jamaican immigrant, had helped lead the men in Mesa Verde on a hunger strike to protest their conditions during the COVID-19 pandemic. Grant had been paroled, but those remaining in the Southern California detention center began to discuss the possibility of another hunger strike—and not only to protest their own treatment during the pandemic. They wanted to be part of the struggle for Black lives. As they talked, the men agreed that even though they were in detention, they needed to stand in solidarity with those protesting around the U.S., and around the world.

Detainees Report Bloody Noses, Nausea From ICE Chemical Disinfectant Use - Latino Rebels
WASHINGTON, D.C. — In recent weeks, immigrant advocacy organizations have raised the alarm about the use of toxic chemical disinfectants in cramped ICE facilities during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Detainees at ICE facilities have called in to hotlines for Freedom For Immigrants, Inland Coalition for Immigrant Justice (ICIJ) and others to complain of bloody noses, nausea and respiratory issues from a chemical cleaner called HDQ Neutral.

According to the safety regulations on HDQ Neutral’s web page, the product should only be used outdoors or in a well-ventilated area. According to ICIJ, the cleaner is being used in poorly ventilated areas at detention centers. HDQ Neutral warns that even breathing in vapors from the disinfectant can be harmful, and in some cases it can cause skin burns and serious eye damage.

“At the GEO detention center in Aurora, Colorado we know that ICE and GEO are fumigating at least one pod twice a day,” said Jordan Garcia from the American Friends Service Committee of Colorado in a conference call earlier this week. “That’s causing major swelling, frequent nose bleeding and causing respiratory distress.”

The GEO Group manages detention centers across the US and internationally, and they were previously accused of not doing enough to stop the spread of coronavirus in their facilities.

Reports of cramped conditions that do not allow for social distancing and insufficient attempts to protect detainees from COVID-19 have been spreading for months.

Yet these newer claims allege that detainees have experienced additional adverse health effects beyond coronavirus because of the improper use of disinfectants to combat the spread of the disease.

More and more people are connecting the two issues of ICE abuses and cop abuses. State/government abuses, really.

Carried out by the same types...authoritarian conservatives, typically whites, but also with a good number of Black, Latino, Asian-American officials, officers, private prison CEOs, etc.

I am hoping that the two movements will fully merge and combine policy-remaking and protest power.

Brown children still in detainee camps, the nicest thing to call them, and they are not being protected from the virus. Their lives mean nothing to not just rump and many ICE but to anyone and everyone who DEFENDS rump or doesnt speak out.

Think of the THOUSANDS of acts of crime and murder and treason we catalog here daily for 3 years and a certain group of you know whats NEVER have anything to say about it, weird eh!

ICE Says Foreign Students Can’t Attend Online-Only College This Fall, Despite Pandemic

TOPLINE U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced Monday that international students “may not take a full online course load and remain in the United States” during the fall 2020 semester, as schools and universities across the country consider how to reopen amid the coronavirus pandemic.

KEY FACTS International students on nonimmigrant F-1 and M-1 visas cannot remain in the U.S. or legally enter the U.S. if their studies are entirely online, and ICE recommended in a press release that students whose schools are online-only should “[transfer] to a school with in-person instruction to remain in lawful status.”

This doesn't even make sense, and makes me wonder at the intelligence of the ICE people coming up with this plan. It's July, school starts in August in most places, and they're expected to relocate to somewhere else that may or may not have a comparable program they're in....okay....

ICE Offering 'Citizens Academy' Course with Training on Arresting Immigrants - Newsweek

I heard they have lots of brown-hued shirts on backorder. :problem:
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency is set to launch a six-week "Citizens Academy" course on immigration enforcement, which will include training for citizens on how to arrest undocumented immigrants.

A letter published online by The St. Louis Inter-Faith Committee on Latin America (IFCLA) appears to show ICE Chicago Field Office Director Robert Guadian inviting shareholders to participate in the course, which includes six days of training over a six-week period starting in September.

"You have been identified as a valued member of the community who may have interest in participating in the inaugural class of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Chicago Citizens Academy," the letter states.
This administration's immigration policies are worse than Fugitive Slave Laws era USA and have been for the past 3 years.

Harvard Affiliates, Other Colleges and Universities File Amicus Briefs In Support of ICE Lawsuit

Ahead of a Tuesday hearing, supporters within and outside Harvard have begun to prepare and file amicus briefs in the University’s lawsuit against Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Department of Homeland Security.

The lawsuit, which Harvard filed Wednesday with MIT, seeks a temporary restraining order and preliminary and permanent injunctions that would prevent immigration authorities from enforcing new guidelines that bar international students taking online-only courses from residing in the United States.

Border Patrol Sent a Newborn U.S. Citizen to Mexico
Agents in the San Diego Border Patrol sector sent a newborn U.S. citizen to Mexico, according to a new administrative complaint to the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of the Inspector General.

According to the complaint, the father told agents that he was fearful of returning to Mexico, but once again agents did not take any action to set up the legally required non-refoulement interview, the complaint reads. Agents also did not respond to questions about where his partner was taken. Around 1 a.m. on June 28, a Border Patrol agent transported the father and son to the pedestrian border crossing and were directed to walk into Mexico.

That same day, his partner gave birth to a baby boy in Chula Vista. She was also not given any information about her partner and, according to the complaint, throughout her hospitalization, Border Patrol agents interrogated her, “despite her acute pain and distress.”
