Attorney General Sessions Announces Expansion and Modernization of Program to Deport Criminal Aliens
Department of Justice press release ------- Attorney General Jeff Sessions today announced the expansion and modernization of the Department’s Institutional Hearing Program (IHP). The IHP identifies removable criminal aliens who are inmates in federal correctional facilities, provides in-person and video teleconference (VTC) immigration removal proceedings, and removes the alien upon completion of sentence, rather than releasing the alien to an ICE detention facility or into the community for adjudication of status. Bringing an Immigration Judge to the inmate for a determination of removability, rather than vice versa, saves time and resources and speeds hearings.
