Detainees Are Safer in ICE Detention

Higher standards than the community as a whole

The ICE 2011 Performance-Based National Detention Standards provide specific guidance for the medical care and treatment of the agency's detainees. Those detainees receive medical screening at intake and have access to 24-hour medical care thereafter. In addition, detainees have access to needed pharmaceuticals while in ICE detention. They also have access to language services to assist them in obtaining care. Each ICE detention facility must have in place protocols to deal with communicable diseases.
