The rapid advancement of the global COVID-19 pandemic has caused a public health emergency and presents a fatal threat to incarcerated people. Thousands of immigrants are held in the patchwork of detention facilities in the United States, which is comprised of federal immigrant detention facilities, private detention facilities, and local jails and prisons contracted by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to hold immigrant detainees.

NIPNLG has published practice advisories and brought multiple federal lawsuits to address this on-going crisis. All COVID-19 related cases and practice advisories are listed below. We will continue to update these materials and guidance as needed.

This material is up to date as of April 1, 2020.
