DHS OIG report finds ICE inspections of detention facilities ineffective.

  1. Original Date Announced

    June 26, 2018

    The DHS Office of Inspector General (OIG) finds that neither of ICE's two existing types of detention facility inspections, those conducted by private contractors and those by its internal Office of Detention Oversight, is effective. OIG concludes that these inspections are too infrequent and that ICE does not follow up on identified deficiencies. The inspector general was particularly critical of the Nakamoto Group, a company that is contracted to perform inspections at about 100 facilities each year. It called the company’s inspection process “too broad,” and “not always thorough.” [ID #338]
