(Washington)—The Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC) commends Immigration and Custom Enforcement’s (ICE) new policy to avoid arresting and deporting noncitizen survivors of crime.
“This new policy is a step in the right direction in helping noncitizen survivors of crime access help they need here without fear of reprisal,” said ILRC Supervising Attorney Alison Kamhi. “We hope the new policy is embraced fully by ICE officials to help survivors receive the benefits and stability they deserve.”
“We hope the Biden-Harris Administration continues to work swiftly to undo the hateful, anti-immigrant policies put in place by the previous administration so that compassion and due process become the norm, not the exception, when dealing with all noncitizens,” Kamhi added.
