AILA Doc. No. 21032532 | Dated March 25, 2021 | File Size: 771 KDownload the Document
AILA issued a policy brief calling on Congress and the Biden administration to seize the opportunity to move away from the nation’s harmful and grossly overused detention system. These detention centers are permanent fixtures and separate from temporary influx shelters and border patrol stations which are used to process recent border arrivals. The brief provides recommendations for reducing and phasing out immigration detention. In its place, AILA calls on a shift to relying on community-based case management support to lead individuals toward compliance and meaningful engagement with our nation’s immigration laws.
