Cuban detainees: ICE forced us to sign forms saying we wanted to go back, ‘visit’ family

For Cuban detainees, though, those “family visit” forms are a fig leaf used to justify hasty, permanent deportations, immigration policy experts say.

The detainees, 26 in all, told the Herald that if they declined to sign the travel documents, agents handcuffed them, pushed them against a table and forcibly scanned their fingerprints to get a digital signature. The Cuban nationals spoke with the Herald while in ICE detention in Louisiana and Georgia and provided some copies of the forms to the Miami Herald.
