- ICE relied on 638 sites scattered throughout the United States to detain individuals, often moving them from one facility to another.
- About 67 percent of detained individuals were held in privately operated facilities, and 64 percent were confined in a remotely located facility.
- More than 48,800 detention facility-related grievances were reported by detainees and community members.
- Nearly half of detainees - 48 percent - were confined at least once in a facility that was located more than 60 miles away from the nearest immigration attorney providing low- or no-cost removal defense services.
- The majority - 60 percent- of adults who were detained were transferred at least once during their detention, leading to confinement in multiple locations.
