ICE Wants to Destroy Its Records of In-Custody Deaths, Sexual Assault, and Other Detainee Files
By John Washington

In May, the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), a project at Syracuse University that tracks and tabulates data on a number of federal agencies, and is an invaluable resource for journalists, academics, and historians, filed a lawsuit under the Freedom of Information Act alleging that ICE is “unlawfully withholding records related to ICE’s immigration enforcement actions.” Though the records TRAC seeks under the lawsuit aren’t specifically about deaths, sexual abuse, or solitary confinement, ICE’s unwillingness to share its policies and actions with the public is matter-of-course.
