    House Questioning Even Most Basic Standards for Humane Treatment of Immigrant Detainees

    Pin It

    Washington, D.C.—Women's Refugee Commission Detention and Asylum Program Director Michelle Brané will testify before the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Immigration and Enforcement Policy Wednesday, March 28, in a hearing entitled “Holiday on ICE: The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s New Immigration Detention Standards.” The hearing will largely focus on the Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) recently released 2011 Performance-Based National Detention Standards (PBNDS), which are intended to improve conditions at detention facilities to meet basic human rights standards. The PBNDS were last updated in 2008 and complement the 2000 National Detention Standards currently used in ICE facilities

    “These long-anticipated standards are a welcome step that, where implemented, will afford thousands of immigrants in immigration detention slightly less restrictive environments. Being detained at an ICE facility is far from a holiday,” notes Brané. “Perhaps most importantly, the 2011 standards will improve detainees access to appropriate and necessary medical, mental health and women’s health care for immigration detainees, many of whom face stays in detention of months or even years.”
