Capital & Main’s new project, Deadly Detention, is intended to give names and faces to undocumented immigrants who have died in federal detention, and to explain how they met such sad fates in the country most had come to in search of better lives. It is a counterweight to ICE’s secrecy and comes as the Trump administration expands an already sprawling detention system to accommodate the growing number of immigrants caught up in its deportation surge. The map below shows the 191 deaths in ICE custody from October 1, 2003 to May 6, 2019.
