COMMENTARY: ICE data breach puts asylum seekers at risk 

While ICE has released some people from detention and some have secured relief through representation, but many still do not have legal representation and remain detained because ICE refused to release them for unknown reasons. Thus, while little progress has been made, most people affected by the data breach remain detained. A typical length of detention can be anywhere from three to four months to almost three years in cases of arbitrary prolonged detention.
