Immigrant advocates ask DHS watchdog to protect ICE detainees from COVID-19
By Paul Ingram

"Almost six out of every 10 people in ICE custody have never been convicted of even a minor petty offense," noted researchers with the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a non-partisan project based at Syracuse University, according to ICE data from March. And, among the people held at Eloy and La Palma, nearly 1,100 were waiting for court hearings in March. At La Palma, only 7 percent of detainees had been convicted of a serious felony, while nearly 92 percent were held without a conviction. At Eloy, about 8 percent had a serious conviction, while nearly 88 percent were held despite having no convictions on record, according to TRAC.
