    “If Flores is modified, overturned, or ignored so that the administration can expand family detention, then migrant and asylum-seeking children would be subject to inappropriate conditions that have already been well documented,” the Women’s Refugee Commission wrote in a report of family detention.

    In September 2017 immigration advocates including the American Civil Liberties Union, the American Immigration Council, and the Women's Refugee Commission, filed a complaint with the Department of Homeland Security about the treatment of pregnant women in ICE detention. The complaint included allegations of mistreatment by 10 women in detention.

    Katharina Obser, senior policy of migrant rights and justice at the Women's Refugee Commission, told Refinery29 that advocates have been concerned about the treatment and detention of pregnant women in ICE detention facilities for a long time. "These are not appropriate conditions for pregnant women," she told Refinery29. "[These centres are] already a punitive and inappropriate place for the populations who are being detained there, let alone for someone with the specific medical needs that a pregnant women might have."

    The Women’s RefugeeCommission (2016) investigated the Eastern European route. They found that fundamental health care services in transit centres can be difficult to access. Furthermore, there are few interpreters available, which hinders women from seeking help (UNHCR, UNFPA, WRC 2016:8-9); 88% ‘did not know where to obtain contraceptives’, and 25% ‘did not know where to access services if they became pregnant’ (Al Jazeera 2017). Moreover, transit centres are mainly gender-mixed, which leaves women extremely vulnerable.

    “Custody is never a good place for pregnant women, and we have in the past heard really devastating stories of both mothers’ and babies’ health being at risk,” said Brané, who dismissed the administration’s policy of not detaining immigrant women in their third trimester as medically insufficient.

    “The risks of a pregnancy are not nonexistent before the third trimester,” Brané said. “Being in immigration custody is problematic when you are pregnant, no matter what phase of pregnancy you are in, especially when you take into account the effects of stress.”

    Michelle Brané, director of the Women's Refugee Commission, said 9 out of 10 immigrants she spoke to in CBP custody would tell her and her staff they made the choice to cross illegally after other migrants told them the line to enter legally would mean a long wait in a dangerous place. 17, 201904:50

    "They would say, 'There was a line and they told me I would get turned away,' or, 'People told me it's too dangerous and you can't get in that way,'" Brané said.

    Michelle Brané, of the Women’s Refugee Commission, and others, did accept the committee’s invitation to testify.

    She said several Trump administration policies have led to longer stays in custody and lack of appropriate facilities to house the migrant children, including the policy of separating children from their parents at the border. Children are usually released to family members but many of these people are being deported, Brané said, under the administration’s more aggressive deportation policies.

    “Especially because of the way that the U.S. government has been metering ports of entry,” Brané said, referring to a policy that only allows a few asylum seekers entry into the country at a time, “people are arriving in more and more precarious health. Especially for a pregnant woman, it’s not surprising that she arrived in distress.”

    "We don't know exactly how many children were separated and there's no question (the government's) complete lack of tracking makes it complicated and is outrageous, irresponsible, and frankly, criminally negligent," said Michelle Brané, director of migrant rights at the Women's Refugee Commission and part of the steering committee that helped find families covered by Sabraw's order.

    Gender-based violence is deeply rooted in gender inequality and women’s disempowerment. GBV is one of the primary obstacles to achieving gender equality, and gender inequality perpetuates norms that promote GBV. In order to effect change on GBV, gender equality programming must be an integral part of the work.

    The Women's Refugee Commission has issued a brief that focuses on the Call to Action on Protection from Gender-based Violence in Emergencies, and how it addresses the linkages between gender inequality and gender-based violence (GBV).

    “It may look like it’s working in the short term,” said [Michelle] Brané [the director of migrant rights and justice at the Women’s Refugee Commission], “but I don’t think it’s a long-term solution. It’s driving people further into the shadows and that’s exactly the opposite of what we want.”

    “The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s own Office of Inspector General (OIG) has issued multiple reports on ICE’s problematic detention practices and, moreover, the agency’s poor inspection and oversight processes," Katharina Obser, senior policy adviser for the Migrant Rights and Justice program at the Women’s Refugee Commission, said in a statement. “This is a system that needs an overhaul, not expansion.”
