ICE Again Bungles Alternatives to Detention Data, Claims Contractor is Charging $550,000 Per Day
(31 May 2023) ICE again released data on the number of immigrants monitored by the agency’s Alternatives to Detention (ATD) program that is inaccurate and misleading, which continues a pattern of sloppy data releases that the agency appears unable or unwilling to resolve.

Despite Efforts to Provide Pro Bono Representation, Growth Is Failing To Meet Exploding Needs
(12 May 2023) The availability of pro bono legal representation has grown for noncitizens with cases before the Immigration Court. It is, in part, a remarkable story of the increase of volunteer efforts across this country given the importance of legal representation to immigration outcomes. But despite this growth, volunteer efforts have not been able to meet the needs of immigrants as the number and pace of Court hearings accelerate. See more...
