How Is COVID-19 Impacting the Immigration System?

Hearings for immigrants currently held in detention will continue as scheduled in open courts. In Texas, that includes more than 14,000 people held in ICE detention centers, according to data analyzed last April by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University. Silky Shah, executive director of the Defense Watch Network, is joining with other immigration advocacy groups like RAICES to call for the release of immigrants currently held in U.S. detention centers. In the past, she said, detention centers have been “breeding grounds for illnesses.”
