Release Of Women Asylum Seekers from Cibola Prison
Hosts Needed for 3-4 Day Stays
By Hannah Leigh Bull
The Santa Fe Faith Network for Immigrant Justice is now hosting women who were detained in the transgender ICE pod at the Cibola private prison near Grants, NM. They were released in a legal temporary asylum decision, pending the outcome of a parole hearing, which can take up to six months. They are released to a sponsor, who is often a family member. The hope is that the judge ultimately hearing the parole application will grant them asylum so that they can legally remain in the United States.
