ICE said it will no longer detain most pregnant, nursing and postpartum women for deportation, reversing a Trump-era rule that permitted officials to jail thousands of immigrants in those circumstances. ICE’s new policy is even more expansive than the Obama-era policy, which only exempted pregnant women. ICE officials said in a statement that the new policy takes into greater account the “health and safety” of expecting and new mothers and recognizes “the time needed for infant development and parental bonding.” The policy revokes a 2017 Trump administration directive that “ended the presumption of release for all pregnant detainees.”
