For one McHenry County detainee, life inside an immigration detention center is filled with heartbreak, fear and despair
By Chelsea McDoughall

According to data collected by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, or TRAC, at Syracuse University, only half of immigration holds were placed on individuals with any prior conviction. The overwhelming proportion of detainers about four out of five were issued for individuals who had no convictions or, at most, had been convicted of a misdemeanor or petty offense of some type, according to TRAC data.
