What did ICE expect? When immigrant adults, teens, and children are thrown onto cold cement floors with a single mylar blanket, they get sick. When tens of thousands of people are crammed together, the flu spreads like rapid fire among the imprisoned, and thoughts of suicide are ever-present. Yet, the cost to the American taxpayer to privately house them ranks right up with the cost of a luxury Trump Hotel room. These people are suffering.
An immigrant from Nigeria died while in the custody of the U.S. Immigration and Enforcement aka ICE. He was being held in the Worcester County Jail in Snow Hill, Maryland.
ICE released a statement that read the 56-year-old died at 5:23 a.m. on December 21, 2019, much like the sex offender of little girls for the rich and famous, Jeffrey Epstein:
‘The preliminary cause of death appears to be self-inflicted strangulation; however, the case is currently under investigation.’
Then, ICE released this untruth:
‘ICE is firmly committed to the health and welfare of all those in its custody and is undertaking a comprehensive agency-wide review of this incident, as it does in all such cases. Fatalities in ICE custody, statistically, are exceedingly rare and occur at a fraction of ‘the national average for the U.S. detained population.’
People were supposed to be comforted with this notice of ICE investigating itself:
‘This agency’s comprehensive review will be conducted by ICE senior leadership to include Enforcement and Removal Operations, the Office of Professional Responsibility and the Office of the Principal Legal Advisor.
‘Mr. Akinyemi had been in ICE custody less than 24 hours. He entered ICE custody December 20, one day after he was convicted in Baltimore City Circuit Court for a sex offense and assault.’
Then, the statement read read that ICE had “lodged an immigration detainer” against the man:
‘ICE had previously lodged an immigration detainer against Mr. Akinyemi July 23, 2019, pursuant to his arrest for sexual abuse of a minor.
‘Mr. Akinyemi entered the U.S. lawfully on a non-immigrant visa in December 2017, but he failed to comply with the terms of his admission. At the time of his death, Mr. Akinyemi was in removal proceedings before the federal immigration courts.’
