Ankle monitoring system now being used on immigrants

With the recent news regarding family separation at the border, the federal government has been forced to end that practice. But, the need to keep track of immigrants in the country has increased. Ankle monitoring systems have become the new way of tracking immigrants, with opposition from both sides of the immigration debate.

Florida is a state that is full of immigrants as they are the backbone of the economy and culture. These days, immigrants feel like they are being attacked from all sides, with the government monitoring their every move. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is now issuing ankle monitors to track immigrants who are in the Intensive Supervision Appearance Program.

These have been issued as an alternative to detention, and currently, there are over 40,000 immigrants who wear these devices. Immigration advocates say the devices are inhumane and inappropriate for immigrants who are seeking asylum in the United States.

Many immigrants to the United States are entering the country in search of a better life. Immigrants are the backbone of our society, and the U.S. has typically been sympathetic towards their plight. Immigrants who need help navigating the complex immigration system may want to speak with an attorney who specializes in immigration issues. An attorney understands how to help their client obtain a visa and work towards their citizenship. They can help keep a family together and make sure their legal rights are protected.

These days, immigrants are often seen as criminals and intruders in our country. But, understanding that these people are escaping persecution in search of a better life is important.
