By By Madison Muller, the South Side Weekly

COVID-19 has decreased the number of people detained in ICE detention centers. But since President Joe Biden took office at the end of January, the number of people in ICE detention across the U.S. has doubled—from 13,529 in February to 27,670 as of July 23, according to the USCIS website. According to data from Syracuse's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), 79.4% of current ICE immigrant detainees have no criminal record.
