"Given the unique needs of this population, we will not detain individuals known to be pregnant, postpartum or nursing unless release is prohibited by law or exceptional circumstances exist," said Tae Johnson, ICE's acting director. "This reflects our commitment to treat all individuals with respect and dignity while still enforcing our nation's laws."
One of those officials was Tae Johnson, who is now acting director at Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and who said in a sworn declaration in 2015 that catch-and-release of illegal immigrants does invite more to come.
