Inside the Mississippi ICE Jail Where Detainees Just Keep Waiting
By Paul Moses and Tim Healy

During the Trump administration, both the New Orleans and New York ICE field offices have jailed nearly everyone they’ve arrested pending deportation without giving proper consideration to release, federal judges have found in separate cases. But EOIR data collected by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University suggests that may be more egregious for Adams County detainees than nearly anywhere else in the country, as four out of five detainees there who appeal ICE’s decision to an immigration judge qualify to be granted bond. For New York detainees, it is one in three.
