ICE ends practice of coordinating release plans for undocumented families in Arizona

  1. Original Date Announced

    October 10, 2018

    Secretary Nielsen testifies at Senate hearing that ICE has stopped coordinating release plans for undocumented families in Arizona. Nielsen asserts that DHS is overwhelmed by the number of families crossing the border and ICE needs to move them through detention facilities more quickly than is possible if release plans are coordinated. ICE previously would coordinate release plans for asylum seekers including confirming bus routes, coordinating with NGOs, and communicating with family members before releasing them from detention facilities.
