FEATURING MICHELLE RUIZ – Hundreds of people protested – in a manner consistent with social distancing – in Arizona on Friday to demand that the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Agency immediately release undocumented detainees. About 700 people arrived in 200 cars outside Eloy Detention Center and La Palma Correctional Facility near Phoenix, Arizona. The two privately-run facilities are at great risk of Covid-19 spreading unchecked as there is evidence of a lack of hygiene by staff and several cases of infection.
