Publisher: American Idependent

Experts say the fraught history between U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the people it detains has created mistrust and hesitancy to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, even as prisons and detention facilities suffer constant outbreaks of coronavirus. California public health officials announced earlier in March that those held in ICE-run facilities in the states were now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. In places like New York, officials are pushing prisons hard to administer doses as soon as possible, and present adequate plans detailing how they intend to do it.
