ICE Must Report Deaths

A report by the inspector general of Homeland Security recommended that Immigration and Custom Enforce which has responsibility over detention and deportation must report all deaths of immigrants held in detention to his office and even to states. (See NY Times article.) In May some deaths of immigrants while in detention and often after they has asked for help pointed up to the woeful and negligent health care provided to detained immigrants.
