ICE Hosts NGOs to Discuss Parental, Guardianship Rights for Minor Children, Incapacitated Adults

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Office of Partnership and Engagement (OPE) hosted a virtual stakeholder engagement Aug. 3 with more than 30 individuals representing various nongovernmental organizations – the engagement was held at the request of stakeholders to expand on the July announcement updating the policy, procedures, and requirements for agency officers and special agents to preserve access to family visitation and child welfare services and to hear feedback. A follow up meeting will be held in Q4 of the calendar year to continue to dialog and provide feedback to comments received.

The Women’s Refugee Commission was among the organizations present at the meeting.
