30% of immigrants in ICE custody refused the COVID-19 vaccine

The vaccination declination rate is likely to further fuel concerns about the relation to the surge at the border and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Many of those in ICE custody are recent border crossers, although it also detains those who already live in the country illegally and who the agency is seeking to deport. GEORGE P BUSH WARNS BORDER CRISIS IS ‘NOT SUSTAINABLE’ AS HE SUES BIDEN OVER WALL, HITS DEMS FOR FLEEING  The Trump administration implemented Title 42 public health protections at the start of the pandemic, which turned back migrants rapidly in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The Biden administration has not been turning back unaccompanied children and some family units.

The ongoing crisis at the southern border has raised concern about possible infection not only for migrants who frequently travel to the border in cramped and unsanitary conditions, but also for ICE and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) staff and then into the public at large if they are released into the U.S. According to current ICE data, there are 1,182 positive cases among 27,067 detainees in custody. 

The Biden administration has been aggressively urging all who are eligible to get a vaccine amid a spike in cases originating from the delta variant. According to Axios, which first reported the declination rate, ICE recently began distributing an initial allotment of 10,000 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and that more than 9,500 doses have been distributed so far.

Meanwhile, Fox News reported this week that the number of detainees in CBP custody who tested positive for COVID-19 in the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) Sector alone has increased by 900%. Trump-era officials have warned that many of the countries from where migrants are originating are often lagging behind the U.S. in terms of vaccinations, as well as struggling to keep the virus under control.
