Revised 2012 ICE Detainer Guidance: Who It Covers, Who It Does Not, & the Problems that Remain

The National Immigrant Project (NIP) and the Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC) announce Practice Advisory regarding the December 2012 ICE Detainer Guidance & Form:  In December 2012, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced new ICE detainer guidance and issued a new detainer form which it claimed would result in the issuance of fewer detainers.  The attached Practice Advisory provides guidance surrounding what this change actually means.  In particular, the advisory discusses who will continue to be captured by the new ICE detainer guidance, who will be helped, and the administrative and procedural problems that remain.
