New York Immigrant Family Unity Project Statement on Massive ICE Data Leak of Detained Asylum Seekers’ Information

“ICE has caused a serious security breach that resulted in an appalling breach of privacy and potential for grievous harm to people who are in its custody.  People fleeing torture and persecution have experienced horrific violence and come to the United States seeking safety. Instead, the government has detained them in jail and has now released their personal information to the public, creating a risk of retaliation from the very individuals and governments they fled."


“We demand that the government notify all affected people immediately, either directly, or through their attorneys, that their information was included in the security breach and then proceed to release those impacted people from jail to ensure their safety and so they can begin to remediate the harm that was caused to them."
