Description

Hundreds of Haitians across the country remain imprisoned by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency, even though the Department of Homeland Security has halted all deportations to Haiti as a result of the devastating January 12 earthquake.  The detention of non-citizens who have already completed removal proceedings raises serious constitutional concerns when their removal is not reasonably foreseeable under the 2001 Supreme Court decision, Zadvydas v. Davis.  Unfortunately, in order to seek his or her release, each detainee must formally request that ICE review their custody and grant release under reasonable conditions of supervision.
