They warn that ICE is detaining immigrants who go on dates

A recent report indicates that immigrants have been detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents when they go to their appointments, a practice that became common in the Trump Administration; at the moment there are reports of cases involving Cubans

Several cases of Cuban immigrants who were under alternative detention systems (ATD) are being arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents when attending their official appointments.

This is how several families in Florida report on cases of immigrants who lost their cases in court, but had not been deported because the Government of Cuba did not receive them.

A report by Univision Noticias confirms the detentions and deportation process based on complaints, but ICE did not want to respond in this regard.

These immigrants, the report continues, had final cases of deportation with the government of President Donald Trump, but they could not be removed from the country and were left under certainty.

With the Administration of President Joe Biden, these people were released under the ATD system, which includes a strict surveillance system and constant reporting to the agency.

One of the cases was that of an immigrant who had to report to the ICE office in Miramar, South Florida. He had been given an extension of stay, but then he was called.

“When he returned to the ICE office in Miramar) they told him that he had not shown up, that he did not attend his appointment, and they detained him. They arrested him on October 18, ”indicates the television report.

The Univision report cites cases of Cubans, but it is not clear whether others will be treated in a similar way by the immigration agency.

It should be remembered that ICE increased from 86,000 alternative stops to more than 360,000, according to reports in late September from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), which operates at Syracuse University.

Between 2018 and 2020, dozens of undocumented immigrants who were cited by ICE were arrested, in a practice that was considered a kind of “trap” by immigrant advocates.
