Even as jails across the country let people out on early release and as police lighten up on who goes there (for now), ICE continues to arrest undocumented immigrants.
The day after the lockdown was announced in California last week, ICE was out and about doing crackdowns. They’ve been out in New York City too—court appearances have doubled in the past couple months there.
ICE announced that they would postpone most arrests because of the risk of coronavirus, but in the past week, the nationwide number has grown by 700, which is the highest its been in a year. Almost 40,000 people are in ICE custody right now.
