The United States has the largest immigrant detention infrastructure in the world and today, the U.S. government locks up and deports more immigrants than ever before. The expansion of the system is in part due to an arbitrary quota from Congress that requires the incarceration of 34,000 immigrants in detention at any given time. The immigration detention bed quota, which started in 2009, requires Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to lock-up an average of 34,000 immigrants in detention – close to half a million immigrants annually – in a network of over 250 county and state jails, private prisons and federal facilities.
