Advisory Committee on Family Residential Centers

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Sarah R. Saldaña swore in members of ICE’s new Advisory Committee on Family Residential Centers (ACFRC) at today’s inaugural meeting.

The ACFRC is composed of experts in the fields of primary education, detention management, detention reform, immigration law, family and youth services, trauma-informed services, and physical and mental health. The Committee will play a critical role in helping to enhance our oversight and accountability, increase access and transparency, and ensure ICE’s family residential centers continue to serve as safe and humane facilities for families as they are processed into the immigration system.
