    Of course, ISAP isn’t perfect. Though nearly all participants showed up for court, about 21 percent of immigrants who were ordered to be deported in 2013 failed to comply. And immigration advocacy groups have been critical of intensive monitoring devices like ankle bracelets, which they claim can be painful when worn for days on end and can stigmatize immigrants. “It can be very degrading and humiliating to have to wear,” says Katharina Obser, a senior policy adviser at the Women’s Refugee Commission.

    Though IACHR injunctions are nonbinding, they are intended to create international diplomatic pressure.

    Leah Chavla, who works on migrant rights and justice issues for the Women’s Refugee Commission, said her organization has fielded heartbreaking accounts about the government’s hotlines, which put the onus on immigrant parents to find their children.

    Michelle Brane, director of the Migrant Rights and Justice Program at the Women’s Refugee Commission, said that when she visited the Ursula detention center last week she saw children of similar ages changing diapers and parents distressed over whether their children are receiving needed medications.

    Immigrant advocates filed a suit against the Trump administration Wednesday in Washington, D.C., federal court seeking to compel the government to respond to its Freedom of Information Act requests for information regarding family separation policies, guidance and data.

    The Trump Administration Claims to Have a Database of Separated Children, but They Can’t Prove It Exists

    This is far from a conspiracy theory. The Trump administration lies about large and small issues on a regular basis, and even Kirstjen Nielsen, DHS secretary and allegedly one of the few members of the cabinet with principles, has tried to mislead the public and the press about family separation. But Leah Chavla, a policy adviser for Women's Refugee Commission, told BuzzFeed that even if the database exists, it's not enough: “We're not aware of any database. What we are seeing, what's clear to us, is that CBP [Customs and Border Protection], ORR [Office of Refugee Resettlement], and ICE are not really sharing information in any real, meaningful, comprehensive way for the purposes of reunification.”

    Trump’s Family Detention Policy Will Cost Billions Of Dollars That ICE Doesn’t Have

    The Obama administration experimented with alternatives to detention that used ankle-monitoring, case managers, frequent check-ins or a combination of all three to ensure that families who crossed together made their court appearances and kept in touch with ICE. One pilot project, called the Family Case Management Program, boasted a compliance rate on court appearances of 99 percent, according to a study by the Women’s Refugee Commission.

    “I still don’t see any policies or procedures outlined that describes how it will happen on a systematic basis,” she told The Independent, adding: “The onus is still on the separated persons themselves to find the other person.”

    Cheaper options other than detention actually exist and have been proven successful. One pilot project, called the Family Case Management Program, had a compliance rate on court appearances of 99 percent, according to a Women’s Refugee Commission study.

    Running that program cost ICE only $36 a day per family ― 10 times less than locking up a single individual in family detention, but the Trump administration cancelled it last year.

    A closer look at the executive order tells us all we need to know about the true motivation: to criminalize asylum seekers, punish parents trying to protect their children, eliminate child safety standards, and dismantle the U.S. asylum system, thereby sealing off any legal avenues for those seeking safety from violence or persecution.
