Immigrant Detention Numbers Level Off After Weeks of Growth

According to data released by ICE and processed and stored by TRAC, the number of people being held in civil immigrant detention centers appears to have leveled off after several weeks of growth.

The most recent numbers show that about 25,000 people are in detention. The numbers are still not nearly as high as they were during the Trump administration and prior to the pandemic when there were more than 55,000 people in detention on a single day.
