Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention is known for abuse, pervasive medical neglect, and complete disregard for the dignity of people in its custody. Yet, year after year, Congress allocates billions of dollars toward maintaining detention facilities that traumatize and harm immigrants.
There is another way. People navigating their immigration cases should be able to do so with their families and loved ones, not behind bars in immigration detention. Congress can and should reduce funding for ICE detention capacity and begin to shrink an abusive system that needlessly locks up members of our community and people seeking asylum.
