ABSTRACT

Update to Amnesty International Report on COVID-19 in US Immigration Detention (31 August 2020)   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "Amnesty International documented how, instead of releasing families together, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) asked parents in May 2020 if they would agree to release their children without them, while the parents remained detained. In June 2020, the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) of the US Department of Homeland Security (ICE's parent agency) confirmed in its own oversight report the systemwide deficiencies in provision of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] testing and protection equipment, and that 'social distancing' was nearly impossible for detainees and personnel at US immigration detention facilities."
