Effect of Transfers of Immigrant Detainees

A Costly Move – Far and Frequent Transfers Impede Hearings of Immigrant Detainees in the United States (Human Rights Watch, June 14, 2011)  This 35-page report states that transfers separate detained immigrants, including legal permanent residents, refugees, and undocumented people, from the attorneys, witnesses, and evidence they need to defend against deportation. That can violate their right to fair treatment in court, slow down asylum or deportation proceedings, and extend their time in detention.
