WASHINGTON, D.C. ? U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) invites media to download b-roll footage by way of satellite feed on the start of a new alternative to detention pilot project, the Intensive Supervision Appearance Program (ISAP). The ISAP is an efficient and innovative approach to traditional detention management and will provide a compassionate alternative for eligible aliens while promoting the integrity of our immigration system by ensuring that aliens released from custody appear at immigration hearings and ultimately comply with court orders.
Managed by ICE's Detention and Removal Operations (DRO), the ISAP is scheduled to begin on June 21, 2004 in eight ICE locations across the nation: Baltimore; Philadelphia; Miami; St. Paul; Denver; Kansas City; San Francisco; and Portland, Oregon. Through a partnership with Behavioral Interventions, Inc. of Boulder Colorado, DRO will be placing up to 200 aliens on the ISAP in each of the eight pilot cities. ISAP will include alternatives such as electronic monitoring devices, home visits, work visits and reporting by telephone.
To be eligible for this pilot program an alien must be an adult with a confirmed identity who does not pose a threat to the community or national security. Additionally, it will be available only to aliens who are not subject to mandatory detention, who are pending immigration court proceedings or awaiting removal on a final order of removal and who will be residing within the managed area. It is a voluntary program; all participants must agree to participate and comply with the conditions of their release.
