Austin Landis, Spectrum News, Mar. 12, 2021
"On Friday, the Biden administration officially ended an information sharing agreement between Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the agencies caring for unaccompanied children who cross the border, according to administration officials who said the agreement delayed finding family sponsors for the kids. The Trump-era agreement required information sharing about children from the moment they entered Customs and Border Protection (CBP) custody to the moment they were released to a sponsor, usually a family member. But it also required that information about the sponsor and anyone living with the sponsor also be shared with ICE, which officials said created a “chilling effect” for families who did not have legal status and feared deportation."
[Note: Austin and I have both reached out to DHS asking for a copy of the new agreement, but no response so far. If you find the new agreement, tweet it to us @dibib and/or @_AustinLandis.]
