In The News
On Monday, the New Mexico Governor sued the Trump Administration to try and stop the policy of “quick-releasing” people without facilitating contact with their sponsors. The ask is for the government to return to a “safe release” process it had previously used. No one is sure what the overall impact of that will be on the volume of people released in the long term, but in the short term it could potentially mean less people being released.
