Family Case Management Program for Asylees Set to Close on June 20

The United States’ family case management program is an alternative to detention facilities for asylum-seekers. According to Sarah Rodriguez, an ICE spokesperson, the program caters to “special populations, such as pregnant women, nursing mothers, [and] families with very young children.”

The atmosphere is more like a counseling center where social workers connect asylum-seekers to legal representation, guide them through the court system, and help them receive housing, healthcare and schooling for their children. The program houses over 630 families.

With the program scheduled to close on June 20, future asylum-seekers who aren’t held in detention centers are likely to end up in “intensive supervision” programs (and could be forced to wear ankle monitors).

Many human rights groups have called for an end to detention centers altogether, arguing that long-term confinement can have severe psychological effects on detainees.
