The Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing on maintaining a safe environment for inmates and detainees during the coronavirus pandemic. Federal Bureau of Prisons Director Michael Carvajal, along with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials and medical professionals, testified on efforts to test, track and isolate inmates as well as expedite the approval of early releases to lessen population density. Amid nationwide civil unrest following the death of George Floyd in the custody of the Minneapolis Police Department, many committee members began their remarks by addressing the protests, riots and need for systemic change in the justice system. Chair Lindsey Graham (R-SC) pledged to hold a hearing on the issues in the coming weeks. close
