We join Southern California immigrant legal service providers to demand that ICE immediately release all individuals detained at Adelanto to protect them and our communities from COVID-19. On March 10, the LA Times confirmed four detainees were under observation for the infection.


•Immediately release the most vulnerable, including those who are fifty years or older, who have longstanding medical conditions, or who are immuno-compromised.

•Evaluate the remaining population for release.

•Inform people of their right to seek humanitarian release.

•Ensure every person held at Adelanto during the COVID-19 pandemic has ongoing access to confidential communication with prosecutive and current counsel.

•Ensure every person has access to their hearings in immigration court and guarantee that no person's immigration case is negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

ICE must immediately take preventative, proactive measures against the COVID-19 pandemic as they are wholly responsible for protecting the health and well being of its nearly 2,000 person population.

To support this demand, call 1-866-DHS-2ICE and quote the points above. Please share & repost the images to raise awareness.
