Release of Jean Jacques from ICE Custody

On November 24, 2015 we received a request by Senators Richard Blumenthal and Christopher Murphy, and Representative Joe Courtney, to investigate the circumstances by which Jean Jacques, a Haitian national previously convicted of attempted murder and subject to a final order of removal, was released from the custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Jacques killed another individual, Casey Chadwick, while on release. Our objective was to conduct a factual inquiry regarding the incident, to determine whether ICE adhered to its policies in the release and supervision of Jacques and whether such policies are sufficient to ensure the effective enforcement of U.S. immigration law.
