    Illegal Alien Women Are Being Held in a SeaTac Prison

    Immigrant Mothers Separated From Children Are Being Held in a SeaTac Prison

    by Heidi Groover • Jun 7, 2018 at 3:19 pm


    The Federal Detention Center in SeaTac, where immigration lawyers say asylum seekers are being held.
    FEDERAL BUREAU OF PRISONS


    The Trump administration's latest crackdown on immigrants has reached the Northwest.

    Seattle area immigration lawyers say the Department of Homeland Security may have transferred more than 100 people seeking asylum, including women who were separated from their children at the southern border, to the Federal Detention Center in SeaTac.

    UPDATE: Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed to The Stranger that the agency is transferring detainees to federal prisons, including the facility in SeaTac. The agency has entered an agreement with the Bureau of Prisons to access 209 beds at the SeaTac Federal Detention Center. Asked whether that means 209 detainees have in fact been transferred to SeaTac, ICE spokesperson Danielle Bennett said, "I don’t have any additional info on that." In total, ICE will now have access to more than 1,600 beds in five federal prisons across the country. Bennett said the move was due to "the current surge in illegal border crossings and implementation of the U.S. Department of Justice’s zero-tolerance policy." The agency intends to use the federal prisons as "a temporary measure until ICE can obtain additional long-term contracts for new detention facilities" or until a decline in border crossings, Bennett said.


    Staff at the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project are still working to understand the exact situations of the detainees in SeaTac. They have spoken to several asylum seekers at the facility and are currently working to talk with more, said NWIRP Legal Director Matt Adams. Based on what they know so far, they believe the inmates were first detained in Texas. There, NWIRP staff believe they were separated from their children, charged with unlawful entry (a federal misdemeanor), and sentenced to time served.

    Rather than being released to continue the asylum seeking process, they were recently transferred to SeaTac and remain detained.


    The three women NWIRP staff have spoken to so far are from El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala. Their children are 15, 16, and 11.


    The Trump administration has instituted a "zero tolerance" policy on families who enter the country illegally. That has resulted in parents being detained in federal prisons while their children are sent separately to shelters.


    Simultaneously, the government has begun holding people seeking asylum from violence in their home countries in prison.

    That has drawn legal challenges from the American Civil Liberties Union and other groups. The ACLU is also challenging the process of separating parents from their children.


    Much of this crackdown has played out on the southern border.

    The asylum seekers at SeaTac are "the first group we’ve seen [in the Seattle area] that have been affected by the administration's new policy," Adams said.

    A representative for the Federal Detention Center did not immediately return a call seeking comment.


    NWIRP staff have spoken with three women at the facility, each of whom described being separated from their children in Texas and then transferred to SeaTac.

    The women also shared what they know about other detainees, Adams said. The women said they were part of a group of 60 women.

    NWIRP believes there is a second group of 60 people being held in another part of the detention center.

    NWIRP staff planned to meet with nine more detainees today, Adams said.


    "The women we talked to didn’t even know where their children were," Adams said. "That is what is brand new: this naked display of power by the government, using the misery of separating families in order to deter other asylum seekers from trying to come to the United States."

    Adams said it is “very unusual” that the asylum seekers were transferred to SeaTac instead of to the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma. That also makes it more difficult to reach them and learn about their conditions.

    NWIRP does not have the same presence at the SeaTac facility as it does at the 1,500-bed Tacoma detention center, which holds immigrants facing deportation.

    There, NWIRP regularly conducts legal trainings and works with immigrants on their cases. The organization first learned of the women at the facility in SeaTac through a lawyer who worked on their cases in Texas.


    "They're kind of hidden away there," Adams said. "They were not getting access to the services that we provide."


    Adams said NWIRP may release more information about the detainees in coming days after learning more.

    Female Offenders

    Female offenders are provided appropriate programs and services to meet their physical, social, and psychological needs



    In 1993, the BOP developed and implemented a new designation and classification system for female offenders to take into account the fact that female offenders are less likely to be violent or attempt escape.

    As a result of this classification system, the missions of several facilities were changed to provide more low and minimum security bed space for female offenders.


    Appropriate programs and services are provided to female offenders to meet their physical, social, and psychological needs. At institutions housing female inmates, women are offered many of the same educational and recreation programs as male offenders.

    Job training is also available with apprenticeship programs in 40 different trades. Accredited by the U.S. Department of Labor and the Bureau of Apprenticeship & Training, these programs offer female offenders career opportunities upon their release.


    Facilities Housing Female Offenders











    Mothers and Children

    The BOP provides female inmates with medical and social services related to pregnancy, birth control, child placement, and abortion. Inmates are medically screened for pregnancy upon admission and are instructed to inform medical staff as soon as they suspect they are pregnant. If necessary, the childbirth takes place at a hospital outside the institution, and arrangements are made with outside social service agencies to aid the inmate in finding an appropriate placement for the child. Newborn children are not permitted to return to the institution with their mothers. They can, however, accompany an adult visitor in accordance with BOP visiting policy.

    The BOP offers a community residential program called Mothers and Infants Nurturing Together (MINT) for women who are pregnant at the time of commitment.

    The MINT program is based in a residential reentry center and promotes bonding and enhanced parenting skills for low-risk female inmates who are pregnant.

    Women are eligible to enter the program if they are in their last three months of pregnancy, have less than five years remaining to serve on their sentence, and are eligible for furlough. Prior to the birth, the mother must make arrangements for a custodian to take care of the child. Institution and MINT staff and community social service agencies may aid the inmate in finding an appropriate placement for the child. The inmate or a guardian must assume financial responsibility for the child’s medical care while residing at MINT. The mother has three months to bond with the newborn child before returning to an institution to complete her sentence. In select MINT programs, the inmate may stay for an additional period of bonding with the child. The decision to refer an inmate to the MINT program is at the discretion of the inmate's unit team.


    Inmates in this program participate in pre- and post-natal classes on such topics as childbirth, parenting, and coping skills. In addition to services specifically related to parenting, MINT sites also offer chemical dependency treatment, physical and sexual abuse counseling, budgeting classes, and vocational and educational programs.


    Abortion


    In accordance with Federal law, the BOP may not use appropriated funds to require any person to perform or facilitate the performance of an abortion. BOP funds are used to pay for abortion services only when the life of the mother would be endangered if the fetus is carried to term or in the case of rape. In all other cases, non-BOP funds must be obtained to pay for an abortion.

    However, in all cases whether the BOP pays for the abortion or not, the BOP may expend funds to escort the inmate to a facility outside the institution to receive the procedure. Inmates receive medical, religious, and social counseling regarding their decision whether to carry the pregnancy to term or to have an elective abortion. If an inmate decides to have an abortion, arrangements are made for these medical services to be provided in an appropriate clinic outside the institution. BOP policy provides that employees may decline to participate in the provision of abortion counseling or services.

    This looks to be about female prisoners in general, not necessarily illegal alien being prosecuted for crossing the border illegally. Not everything here applies to female illegal aliens.
