ABSTRACT

Long Time Coming: How the Immigration Bond and Detention System Created Today's COVID-19 Tinderbox   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Executive Summary: "Immigrants detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement are at increased risk of contracting COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] due to over-inflated jail populations, decreased access to medical care, and inadequate sanitation and hygiene. While this immediate health emergency brings immigration detention to a crisis point, there are underlying systemic problems that must be addressed. By examining immigration bond and detention this report aims to shed light on the immediate threat to detained immigrants and set forth a roadmap for a more humane system going forward."
