On April 20, 2020, a federal district court issued a decision on a court case called Fraihat v ICE requiring U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to take a number of important steps to protect medically vulnerable people in their custody from COVID-19. What does this mean? It means that ICE needs to review the medical records of people detained in the facilities for potential release.
Individuals in ICE detention with COVID-19 risk factors can request to be evaluated for release.
