As the United States leads the world in coronavirus infections, Democracy Now! goes behind the walls of immigrant jails, where infection rates are also soaring.
Also, DN takes a look at how thousands more jailed migrant parents may be separated from their children starting Friday. “Release is the only way to save the lives of people in custody,” says reporter Jacob Soboroff, who went inside these ICE jails and first witnessed kids in cages in 2018. Jacob Soboroff writes about these findings in his new book, “Separated: Inside an American Tragedy.”
