Report: ICE Abandoning Immigrants with Disabilities and Mental Illnesses

Attorneys reported that individuals who are declared mentally incompetent from cognitive disabilities or mental illnesses are being thrown out of immigration detention without notice to their attorneys, families or caregivers. Vera recently released a report (English/Spanish) describing the experiences immigrants with disabilities and mental illnesses faced in immigration detention. One of them was Luis, an immigrant detainee who had a serious mental illness and was released and put on a bus to California to an address where no one in his family had lived for about a year.
