Immigration attorneys in El Paso are joining forces to denounce what they describe as an abuse of power on behalf of immigration enforcement officers. Chief among their concerns is the prolonged detention of asylum seekers.
The U.S. government announced Tuesday it is expanding its efforts to help Central American families trying to get to the U.S. in order to stave off a surge of migrants at the border.
The detention center reopened Tuesday. Arizona had 22 reported cases of measles, all stemming from the facility.
So far, 790 cases have been put on hold since the outbreak forced the shuttering of the court.
ICE's internal review were released last month.
Health officials say Immigration and Customs Enforcement employees are refusing measles vaccines and workers may be spreading the virus among their own familymembers in Arizona.
It's the first time the agency has released its findings into internal investigations on agents' weapon use.
Pinal County health officials said 40 percent of detention center staff have refused to show they were vaccinated and refused vaccinations for the measles virus.
The legal battle between the U.S. government and immigrant rights groups has been fought in court since just after the 2014 Central American migrant crisis.
Polygraph examiners for the Border Patrol are criticized for how they manage examinations in the agency's Tucson sector.
