Judge rules migrant children in government family detention centers must be released due to coronavirus

Judge rules migrant children in government family detention centers must be released due to coronavirus

By Priscilla Alvarez, CNN

(CNN)The US government must release migrant children held in the country's three family detention centers by mid-July due to the coronavirus pandemic, a federal judge ruled Friday.


In her order, Judge Dolly M. Gee of the US District Court for the Central District of California called for the swift removal of migrant children who are at one of the three family detention centers, which are run by Immigration and Customs Enforcement and located in Texas and Pennsylvania.

The children must be released with their parents or to "available suitable sponsors or other available COVID-free non-congregate settings" with the consent of their parents or guardians, Judge Gee said.

I think it's a good thing for them to get out of detention no matter what. The children shouldn't be there in the first place.

Whatever it takes to get kids and families out of jail is what needs to be done ASAP. We are paying ridiculous amounts of money to keep them in cages with the current system of incarcerating immigrants waitng for the courts. It is inhumane, even for adults. Reallocate the resources, there's a shit ton of money being thrown at the border.

speaking of wasted money and trumps ego...

trumps wall has been a complete disaster and waste of money.

an appeals court just ruled trumps diverting 2.5 billion from the military to build more of it is illegal.

weve spent a fortune replacing the 216 miles of it that was up, and on the 3 measly miles of it he has added. people are sawing through it and climbing over the sections that dont fall over on their own.

it has been a complete waste of money and time with nothing to show for it, but he goes in front of the racists that support him to declare what a success it is, and theyre stupid enough to believe it.

and meanwhile, his lie about mexico paying for it was a complete farce, as just as any not stupid person predicted: mexico hasnt spent so much as a single peso on it.

literally a fortune wasted on his ego and the racism of his supporters for 3 miles of useless fence.

This essay was last updated on June 16.

The paper examines the three-month period from mid-March through mid-June 2020, when COVID-19 established itself in and spread through the US detention system, and beyond it. It offers a compendium of detention-related developments during this period, and documents the fatally flawed response of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). It also explores how the pandemic exploited and exacerbated longstanding problems with the US detention system, such as its privatization, prison-like facilities and standards, lack of meaningful oversight, and perverse financial incentives. At this writing, the pandemic continues to rage, and the numbers of infected detainees and detention facilities with outbreaks continue to rise. The large-scale release of immigrant detainees remains an urgent priority, as a first step in the long-term reform of the immigrant detention system.

Number of Confirmed COVID-19 Cases Among Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Detainees : March - June 2020







While sobering, ICE’s posted figures of “confirmed” cases revealed only the tip of an iceberg. Although ICE claims to have begun testing in February 2020 (ICE 2020b), by mid-April – as COVID-19 spread through the US detention system – ICE had tested only 300-400 detainees (Misra 2020). In late April, news sources reported that ICE planned to secure 2,000 tests per month from the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) (Hesson and Rosenberg 2020). Yet by May 1, it had tested only 1,073 detainees, by May 19 only 2,194, and by May 27 only 2,620 (ICE 2020b).[6] As of June 12, this figure had jumped to 7,364 (ibid.). Overall, a very low percentage of those in ICE’s custody during the pandemic have been tested. A very high percentage of those tested — 51 percent by May 27 and 28 percent by June 12 — had tested positive (ibid.).

If ICE tested earlier and more extensively, it would have “confirmed” and faced additional pressure to respond to the many more infected persons in its custody. By way of comparison, the infection rate of tested detainees significantly exceeds the rates of those tested (for the week ending June 6) at public health (5 percent), clinical (5.3 percent) and commercial (6.1 percent) laboratories (CDC 2020e).

Even if accurate, ICE’s figures on infected detainees would significantly understate the size of the problem in the US detention system. ICE’s estimates do not include many former ICE detainees who contracted COVID-19, a large number of whom were deported prior to being tested (Dickerson and Semple 2020).[7]
