MIAMI — The list of immigration detainees personally asking a Miami federal judge to release them from coronavirus-riddled detention centers in South Florida continues to grow.The new requests for release — each about 200 pages long — began to trickle in about two weeks ago after U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement revealed that a detainee had died of the virus at a Palm Beach County hospital.

ShutterstockWith the money we spend on ICE and CBP, we could solar power nearly 35 million homes.ByJosue De Luna Navarro| July 22, 2020The climate crisis is perhaps the greatest challenge humanity is facing.

In deporting a key witness, ICE takes a page from Putin | Editorial
It’s the sort of trick you’d pull if you were merely pretending to be a democracy: Hold a man in horrific conditions, then, if he sues, abruptly deport him.But that seems to be exactly what happened to one man in New Jersey.Hector Garcia Mendoza, jailed by the Newark field office of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, was one of the few detainees willing to put his name on a recent class action lawsuit over the “filthy” conditions he faced during this pandemic: People with serious health conditions forced to sleep just inches apart, with no soap, and the virus raging.Then, just four days...
