A second person in ICE custody has died of COVID-19.


On Sunday, a 34-year-old man named Santiago Baten-Oxlag, who was in ICE custody, passed away from COVID-19 complications. Before being admitted to a hospital in Columbus, Georgia, he was detained at the Stewart Detention Center, a privately-run prison.
