Biden Administration Announces It Will Review the Deportations of Veterans and Military Family Members

The Biden Administration announced that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will be reviewing the removals of veterans and military family members.

According to a 2019 Government Accountability Office (GAO) report, about 250 veterans were either deported or placed in removal proceedings between 2013 and 2018.  When Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers encounter a potentially deportable veteran, their own policies require them to take additional steps. The report found, however, that ICE did not consistently implement those policies and has not developed a policy to identify and document all military veterans it places in removal proceedings.
