  • NGO Response to RFI “Immigration Detention Services – Multiple Areas of Responsibility”

    In this letter, we provide evidence demonstrating that: 1) The vast majority of those detained pursuant to this proposed expansion will not have meaningful access to pro bono counsel; 2) Expansion of ICE’s already broken detention system will further jeopardize the lives and civil rights of those detained; and 3) Contrary to the text of the RFI, there is no public safety justification for this envisioned expansion and in fact the public would be far better served by decreasing the numbers of those detained and utilizing community-based alternatives to detention for those not released on their own recognizance.
