Noncitizen Youth in the Youth Justice System: 2018 Update. Check out this report from the Casey Foundation: http://www.aecf.org/resources/noncitizen-youth-in-the-juvenile-justice-system-2018-update/
In 2014, the Annie E. Casey Foundation issued a report, Noncitizen Youth in the Juvenile Justice System, aimed at ensuring the safe and fair treatment of noncitizen youth in detention. This update picks up where the 2014 report left off. It tells how subsequent policy changes have impacted youth in the juvenile justice system and offers updated advice on working with noncitizen youth and young people with noncitizen family members. The goal? Arm jurisdictions and individual employees with the information needed to craft policies and procedures consistent with the core strategies of the Foundation’s Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative.
