UCS AND ADULT DETENTION: ROADBLOCKS, REMEDIES AND REMOVALS




Webinar Details

Either by turning 18 in ORR custody or being appended by ICE, UC clients can end up in adult ICE detention. How can you prepare clients beforehand? How do you navigate representing a detained young adult? This presentation includes how to talk to detained UC about aging out; communication and visitation with clients in ICE facilities; roadblocks to bond redetermination for UCs; and the effects of ICE detention on UC status and available remedies.
