Cruz Ortiz in Art Action and Caravan to ICE Detention Center

On Friday, June 26, 2020 a federal judge in Los Angeles ordered the release of all migrant children from ICE’s three family detention centers . There are currently eleven children and parents who have tested positive for Covid-19 at the Karnes Family Detention Center in Karnes City, TX. The full order requires the Department of Homeland Security to release children in detention by July 17th if they have been held in ICE family detention centers for more than 20 days. The order states what we already know: that ICE CAN release parents with their children immediately. We cannot wait until July 17th for ICE to release all adults and children. The order also states that ICE is required to report their progress on July 8th which opens the door for ICE to finalize a formal plan for family separation. This deadline is NOT an excuse to release children separately from their parents.

Lyle Ashton Harris in The Art Newspaper

Shortly before lockdown measures were implemented in mid March due to the coronavirus pandemic, the New York-based artist Lyle Ashton Harris retreated to his home upstate to “de-escalate and take some time to gestate” the current happenings in the world, he says.

Rarely does one enjoy the pleasure of being in the company of legendary people. Lyle Ashton Harris is one such person. His work has pushed boundaries and opened zones of creative agency for a generation of young artists.
