The Renegade I.C.E. Might Be This Administration's Worst Gift to the Nation

BY CHARLES P. PIERCE


When, and if, the history of this leprous administration is written, the rampage it has enabled among the berserkers of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement police is going to have place of great prominence. Of course, that will depend on whether there are records for those future historians to consult, and the ACLU informs us that there's nothing certain about that, either.

ICE has asked for permission to begin routinely destroying 11 kinds of records, including those related to sexual assaults, solitary confinement and even deaths of people in its custody. Other records subject to destruction include alternatives to detention programs; regular detention monitoring reports, logs about the people detained in ICE facilities and communications from the public reporting detention abuses. ICE proposed various timelines for the destruction of these records ranging from 20 years for sexual assault and death records to three years for reports about solitary confinement.


There is absolutely no reason that ICE should be allowed to do this. It's purely inhumane ass-covering for purely inhumane offenses. Who profits from the destruction of records relating to sexual assaults except the perpetrators and the guards who were supposed to stop them, but who, either through negligence or worse, failed to do their jobs? Even worse, it looks like the responsible federal authority is buying ICE's threadbare rationale.
