Project Timeline

CURRENT / ONGOING:  The U.S. Justice Department and Immigration Customs Enforcement are reviewing the following major recommendations in the Texas Appleseed report:


  • Place immigrants with mental disabilities in the least restrictive setting while their immigration status is adjudicated.

  • Provide appropriate mental health diagnosis and care in immigration detention.

  • Move to an electronic medical records system to reduce medical error and improve prompt access to critical health information in the immigration process.

  • Adopt consistent immigration court procedures to recognize and accommodate people with mental disabilities.

  • Develop clear procedures to ensure safe domestic release or repatriation of immigrants with mental disabilities.

June 14, 2011:  Texas Appleseed and more than two dozen advocacy groups signed a letter to the Office of Inspector General in support of the OIG report on the need to improve management of mental health cases in immigration detention.
