In America, we believe that all people should be treated fairly and with dignity. We believe the government is accountable for the wellness of anyone who is under its watch. This week, the Department of Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released upgraded immigration detention standards that would hopefully move the government closer to fulfilling its obligation and its promise to provide safety, dignity and fairness in the immigration detention system.
