ABSTRACT

Policies & Polling on the Coronavirus and America's Immigrant Detention Crisis   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "Today, tens of thousands of immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers are at risk of contracting the coronavirus because of the current punitive immigration enforcement regime in the United States. Amidst the calls for 'self-isolation,' thousands of immigrants are herded into detention facilities, which, for all intents and purposes, are prisons, where we know that the risk of infection is great. The solution to this crisis is simple: release people from detention and stop detaining people in the first place. But will the United States government rise to the call?"
