Does the Senate Immigration Bill Implement a “Detain and Deport” Policy?
The Senate immigration bill was officially released on February 4, 2024, as an amendment in the nature of a substitute for H.R. 815. Supporters of the bill claim that the bill ends the Biden Administration’s practice of catch-and-release and replaces it with a policy of “detain and deport.” In support of this claim, they point to the bill providing funding to increase U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention bed capacity from 34,000 to 50,000, funding to increase ICE removal flights, and a new process for hearing asylum claims with a goal of completing them within 90 days.
