Remember if you or a loved one need help with your immigration case, please call Austin immigration attorney, Kate Lincoln-Goldfinch today. 

Immigrant mothers seeking asylum from harsh conditions in their countries of origin are now being required to wear ankle monitors as part of an immigration reinforcement policy set by ICE, known as “alternative detention,” or ATD.

Right now, about 12,000 immigrants wear these ankle monitors, and the Department of Homeland Security plans to expand to 50,000 immigrants by 2016.

The ankle monitors have not proven to be a more humane method of tracking immigrants released from custody awaiting court proceedings.
