Death Detainee Reports Released by ICE

On the ICE website:

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is committed to upholding an immigration detention system that prioritizes the health, safety, and welfare of all of those in our care in custody. Upon an official report of a detainee death, ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) makes official notifications to Congress, non-governmental organization (NGO) stakeholders, and the media and posts a news release with relevant details on the public website, at, within two business days, per agency policy. ERO also schedules a meeting within three (3) business days to brief senior leadership about the event and ensure that all required investigation and coordination is undertaken in a timely manner. Congressional requirements described in the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Bill (2018) require ICE to make public all reports regarding an in-custody death within 90 days. The table below includes those reports, beginning in Fiscal Year 2018.
