- U.S. Immigration Customs Enforcement accidentally posted the identities and detention locations of more than 6,000 immigrants fleeing "torture and persecution" on its website, The Los Angeles Times reports. Though all currently in ICE custody, the immigrants could be exposed to retribution from the gangs and governments they sought refuge from in the U.S. In a statement, ICE said the immigrants’ personally identifiable information was posted for "approximately five hours" and the disclosure, though accidental, was a “breach of policy.”
