Georgia is seeing a surge in the number of people in its immigration detention facilities. As of mid-May, the federal government was detaining 2,408 immigrants in Georgia facilities, an increase of nearly 54% over May 2023, according to Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse. Georgia now holds the fifth-largest number of people in Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention.
