Migrant Detention

Over the past decade, Immigration and Customs Enforcement has accelerated its detention of lawful permanent residents, asylum seekers and undocumented immigrants. Many of these detainees wait for months-- or even years-- without a hearing. Larry Cox is Executive Director of Amnesty International. He’ll be joined by Hector Veloz, a U.S. citizen who was held in migrant detention for 13 months, even after he produced documentation proving his citizenship.
