COVID cases surge at El Paso ICE detention facilities
By René Kladzyk

Between February and early July, the number of people being detained by ICE nearly doubled to more than 27,000 migrants detained as of July 8, according to data compiled by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. The TRAC data also found that nearly 80% of asylum seekers and migrants being held in ICE detention facilities have no criminal records. Seeking asylum is a legal way to enter the United States, upheld by both domestic and international law.
