Cipriano Chávez Álvarez, a 61-year-old man from Mexico, died early Monday in a Georgia hospital after getting COVID-19 while imprisoned at the privately run Stewart Detention Center. He is the 20th person to die while in ICE custody this fiscal year — the highest number in the past 15 years. At least seven of these deaths have been related to COVID-19.
