ABSTRACT

ICE Did Not Consistently Provide Separated Migrant Parents the Opportunity to Bring Their Children Upon Removal   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Highlights: "We conducted this review because removed migrant parents alleged that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) did not afford them the opportunity to bring their children back with them to their home country, contradicting claims by the Department of Homeland Security and ICE. [...] We made two recommendations to ensure ICE documents separated migrant parents' decisions regarding their minor children upon removal from the United States, and develops a process to share information with Government officials to contact parents for whom ICE lacks documentation about reunification preferences."
