End ICE Abuse

ACLU, Blog series

The American Civil Liberties Union's new blog series 'End ICE Abuse' will run for the two weeks to promote awareness about the abuses during ICE detention.

The Department of Homeland Security assumes that mass detention is the key to immigration enforcement. But in fact, our detention system locks up thousands of immigrants unnecessarily every year, exposing detainees to brutal and inhumane conditions of confinement at massive costs to American taxpayers. Throughout the next two weeks, check back daily for posts about the costs of immigration detention, both human and fiscal, and what needs to be done to ensure fair and humane policy.
