ICE Expands Pilot for Expedited Removal

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will expand the Family Expedited Removal Management Program, the pilot program for expedited removals of asylum-seeking families who are apprehended at the US Southern border.

By the Details
  • Pursuant to the program, heads of households are monitored by a GPS-enabled ankle bracelet instead of staying in a detention facility.
  • Heads of households have a curfew of 11 pm to 5 am every day until they are screened for asylum eligibility.

If found to be ineligble for asylum, families are removed from the United States within 30 days of enrolling in the program and referred to ICE for asylum screening.

The Biden administration’s asylum policies have been met with criticism from both sides of the aisle and have been met with legal challenges.
