Immigration adviser faces learning curve (4/20/09) —

NJ: What sort of shifts in policy should we expect to see soon?

Schriro: There’s been quite a bit of discussion about the decision-making when aliens are identified and are in the process of determination of amenability for deportation and going through the removal process. You know, [one] of the first decisions is where to place that individual pending all those processes: Shall they be detained and under what circumstances, or can they be released to the community? There’s quite a bit of interest, including myself, in revisiting the processes by which we make those decisions.
