The pandemic shows that now is the time to end immigration detention


Susan Akram on Open Global Rights argues that it is time to end immigrant detention:  "Immigration detention is rarely justified and now poses a greater risk to the public given the spread of COVID-19 in ICE facilities."  She closes:  "There is no legal or moral case to detain the vast majority of immigrant adults, let alone immigrant children. Ongoing immigration detention is an unreasonable risk not only to immigrants, but to the health of all of us."
