ICE Policy Leaves Detainees With No Legal Rep, Study Finds
By Seth Freed Wessler

Rounded up, shackled and locked up far from home, most of the almost 400,000 immigrants detained each year are also cut off from their families. According to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University, 52 percent of immigrants in detention are transferred from one detention facility to another during their time in Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody. Many are shipped far away from their residence, often to Texas, where they languish indefinitely behind bars and then find themselves suddenly deported
