OBAMA IMMIGRATION DETENTION HEAD LEAVING JOB

Rate this Entry

Just a month after her appointment as the DHS official charged with overhauling the immigration detention system, Dora Schriro announced she is leaving the position to become the director of corrections for the City of New York. The New York Times reports that Schriro is leaving to care for a sick family member in New York.

The Times' Nina Bernstein discussed the impact of the departure on reform efforts:

Immigrant advocates who learned of her imminent departure from a reporter expressed dismay and concern that the ambitious overhaul announced by the Obama administration last month would be delayed, if not derailed, by her loss.

But in a statement sent by e-mail to The New York Times, the department vowed to conduct an immediate national search to replace Dr. Schriro as director of the new Office of Detention Policy and Planning, a position in which she was to reinvent the patchwork of private prisons and county jails where hundreds of thousands of people accused of being immigration violators are held each year while Immigration and Customs Enforcement tries to deport them.
