In its latest Justice & Peace Alert, leaders of the Conference of Major Superiors of Men point to a news story about the grave conditions at ICE detention centers.
The New York Times recently released a summary of its investigation into COVID-19 outbreaks among ICE detention facilities, which are tracking at 20 times greater than the rate of infection among the general population in the United States.
Reporters explained that there is little protection from the virus due to a lack of internal enforcement of basic pandemic protocols and limited testing. They also noted that inconsistent data tracking by ICE and affiliated contractors has made accountability difficult.
In other news, they point to the Global Sisters Report, which provided a recap of the Biden Administration’s first 100 days in office, with a particular look at migration policy and practice.
