New policy aimed at furthering Trump’s goal of “increasing the number of people subjected to detention, without any regard to particular health needs or other vulnerabilities including pregnancy.”
Immigration officials will abandon efforts to spare most pregnant women from detention, according to new guidance issued by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Acting Director Thomas Homan.
Today, ICE released a policy revoking guidance limiting the detention of pregnant women.
This policy endangers the lives of pregnant women, subjecting them to harmful and prolonged periods of detention. https://t.co/JHVJjWGih1
