The 60-day ban, which originally targeted all forms of immigration, now freezes the issuing of green cards.
Despite warnings from public health experts, ICE still holds nearly 35,000 detainees in close quarters.
Classifying immigrants as “arriving aliens” allows the government to deny them a chance for release from detention.
Detainees have lodged a complaint concerning “abuses, atrocities, violations of human rights, racism and hate.”
Immigrant detainees are not convicted criminals, yet they suffer hostile, prison-like conditions in America for years at a time.
