Today's guest hosts are Brent J. Cohen and Edwith Theogene, Executive Director and Organizing Director for Generation Progress. They discuss how Congress has had an extremely busy past few weeks, with Democrats in the House and Senate working to pass a few bills of great importance to the country and President Biden's Build Back Better agenda. The budget reconciliation bill—which contains many programs and policy solutions from that agenda—is also something that many in the immigration policy and advocacy spaces have been working on in the hope of securing protections for undocumented people living and working in the U.S. While these efforts have encountered some roadblocks thus far, there is still hope of progress being made on that front—both as part of that bill and beyond. To talk more with Brent and Edwith about efforts to protect undocumented people in the U.S. in recent and coming months, and how people can get involved, they're joined by two expert guests.  They are Nicole Svajlenka, the associate director for research on the Immigration Policy team at the Center for American Progress, and Juliana Macedo do Nascimento, the senior advocacy manager at United We Dream.

Immigrant Detention to a More Effective U.S. Immigration Custody System

Migration Policy Institute Podcasts

Play Episode Listen Later Sep 9, 2021 59:44


The sprawling U.S. immigration detention system has long been controversial for its conditions of care, number of immigrants and asylum seekers detained, and costs. Prioritizing detention also has distorted the broader immigration enforcement system by causing a backlog in the immigration courts that must handle cases of detained migrants over those of the 3 million-plus nondetained people who then wait years for decisions, including those with compelling claims for asylum and other forms of relief. Responding to these conditions and likely future immigration realities both at U.S. borders and the interior necessitates rethinking the role and nature of the immigration custody system, steering it away from a punitive, detention-centered approach towards a more effective and fair approach. This represents an opportune moment for action given the substantial reduction of individuals in detention due to COVID-19, coupled with the Biden administration's pledge to reimagine the custody system. This discussion focuses on a report - https://bit.ly/2WhJy52 - from its Rethinking U.S. Immigration Policy initiative that examines how the U.S. government can shift from jailers to case managers in ways that serve the national interest. Report authors lay out current conditions and costs in the system, along with their vision for a reimagined immigration custody system, including areas for congressional action and change in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The conversation covers priorities for custody determinations in a redesigned system, alternatives to detention, and how deterrence can ultimately be achieved when the immigration system's border and interior enforcement, custody, supervision, and asylum adjudication measures are all effectively working together.

And I think the fundamental question is who belongs in California? And for me, I believe, that we are slowly helping people see that your immigration status does not affect whether or not you belong.” - Benyamin Chao on his hopes for the future of immigration policy and the discussion surrounding it.
