The ACLU Just Revealed ICE Is Trying To Destroy Records That Show Systemic Abuse Of Immigrants

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) revealed this week that Immigration and Costumes Enforcement (ICE) is coming up with a plan to destroy any records that show systemic abuse by their agents on undocumented immigrants.

According to the ACLU, ICE have recently come in contact with the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) to ask them to destroy any evidence that is required to keep on immigrant detentions.

Here’s why that’s such a dangerous request:

“ICE has asked for permission to begin routinely destroying 11 kinds of records, including those related to sexual assaults, solitary confinement and even deaths of people in its custody,” the ACLU writes. “Other records subject to destruction include alternatives to detention programs; regular detention monitoring reports, logs about the people detained in ICE facilities and communications from the public reporting detention abuses.”

ICE seems to want to keep their hands clean while they do dirty work. It’s disturbing to know that while Donald Trump is looking to expand ICE’s size and scope they are looking to get rid of any evidence of abuse.

“If the Trump administration has its way, the number of immigrants in detention will increase, detention conditions will deteriorate further and more people will be subjected to life-threatening circumstances and denied their most basic rights,” the ACLU writes. “ICE shouldn’t be allowed to purge important records and keep its operations out of the public eye.”
