Coronavirus is spreading through tightly-packed ICE detention facilities, threatening immigrants, guards, and communities. Sign the petition: urge Congress to investigate the COVID-19 response in ICE detention facilities.
Over 2,700 immigrants in ICE custody have tested positive for coronavirus.
And Yahoo News reports that at the Adelanto Detention Center, ICE is simply spraying disinfectant multiple times a day in an unventilated facility:
“The guards have started spraying this chemical everywhere, all over everything, all the time. It causes a terrible reaction on our skin,” one of the detainees said, adding, “When I blow my nose, blood comes out. They are treating us like animals. One person fainted and was taken out, I don’t know what happened to them. There is no fresh air.”
Patricia Ackerman is running for Congress to end family separation and inhumane treatment of migrants in detention. Stand with her today!
Thanks for standing up.
