The Detention Policy of the US has been criticized since ages! The tough rules, the deadly detentions and other such practices – all are condemned in a major way. The decision to reform the US Detention Policy was cheered and welcomed by people from all over the world.
John Morton, Immigration and Customs Enforcement director, told reporters that detentions of families at the T. Don Hutto Residential Center in Taylor, Texas, which has held 400 people, would end immediately.
According to a recent press release by The Associated Press, “Some families would go to a facility in Pennsylvania, but it has only 85 beds and Morton said other alternatives would be considered. These could include community homes, often run by nonprofit or religious groups, where the immigrants can come and go, but federal officials can still keep track of them.”
Morton further elaborated that this change would lead to “the creation of a system that is marked by and driven by the civil detention philosophy.”
According to the Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, More changes are coming in what she called a major overhaul that DHS officials acknowledge will take years.”
“There are a number of issues that need to be corrected,” Napolitano said. “If people are going to be held … we have an obligation that they be held safely in a clean, healthy environment.” she further added.
All in all, this plan is turning out to be a huge revolution as far the “Overhauling of the Detention Policy” is concerned. People are not only applauding this new makeover but are also seeing this as a step towards the benefit of mankind. We are no exception!
