New Report: If You Build It, ICE Will Fill It

ICE reportToday the ILRC, CERES, and Detention Watch Network released a new report: If You Build It, ICE Will Fill It: The Link Between Detention Capacity and ICE Arrests.

Here is a summary of the report's research finding:

Immigrants in counties with more detention space are significantly more likely to be arrested and detained by ICE.

The likelihood of ICE arrest increases as detention capacity increases.

The counties with the highest number of apprehensions also closely aligned with the
locations of some of ICE’s largest immigration detention facilities

Communities of color, particularly Black immigrant communities, are the most
affected by the mass enforcement that follows detention capacity.
