'Free them all!' Activists demand ICE release detained illegal immigrants during COVID-19 crisis

Dozens of activists stood in social-distancing-appropriate formations on Friday in New York City as they demanded U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement release detainees who have accused of entering the country illegally.

"People are dying in these cages right now," Benjamin Shepard said from behind a surgical mask in Times Square.

Benjamin and the others marched, biked, and drove around the city, describing the COVID-19 pandemic as reason to let federal detainees out of lockup.
