Few Tangible Changes for Detainees as ICE Detention Reforms Anniversary Approaches
One year after U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced its intention to reform the immigration detention system, Human Rights First is urging the agency to fulfill that promise. We commend ICE for the steps it has taken to develop its overhaul strategy, but note that more must be done to revamp the nation’s sprawling detention system, which holds up to 400,000 immigrants – including many asylum seekers – annually in more than 200 jails and jail-like facilities. Read HRF press statement. Take action.
