"I Want Them to Know We Suffer Here": Preserving Records of Migrant Detention in Opposition to Racialized Immigration Enforcement Structures
By Jennifer Hale Eagle

ICE has expanded use of detainers (requests to federal, state and local law enforcement agencies to hold immigrants in custody before turning them over to ICE) as an enforcement strategy and has threatened to withhold normally allocated funding from local jurisdictions for nomcompliance. Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse of Syracuse University (TRAC 2017) reports that beginning of January 2017, ICE began refusing to disclose much of the information about detainer usage that it has provided in response to previous FOIA requests.
