8 CFR Part 236

[INS Order No. 1906-98]
RIN 1115-AF05

Processing, Detention, and Release of Juveniles

AGENCY: Immigration and Naturalization Service, Department of Justice.

ACTION: Proposed rule; reopening of comment period.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
SUMMARY: On July 24, 1998, at 64 FR 39759, the Immigration and 
Naturalization Service (Service) published a proposed rule in the 
Federal Register proposing to establish procedures for processing 
juveniles in Service custody. Specifically, the proposed rule set forth 
proposed service policy for the release of juveniles from custody, as 
well as standards regarding the placement of juveniles in Service 
custody into state-licensed programs and detention facilities. The rule 
also proposed amendments concerning the transportation and transfer of 
juveniles in Service custody. The original comment period for the 
proposed rule closed on September 22, 1998. This document reopens the 
comment period to March 15, 2002. The Service is reopening the comment 
period to hear from the public on the following issues: determinations 
of who speaks for the child with respect to immigration matters, 
circumstances under which detention in a secure juvenile facility is 
necessary, and any additional ideas that may be helpful to minimize the 
number of juveniles who must be placed in Service custody.

DATES: Written comments must be submitted on or before March 15, 2002.

ADDRESSES: Please submit written comments to Director, Policy 
Directives and Instructions Branch, Immigration and Naturalization 
Service, 425 I Street, NW., Room 4034, Washington, DC 20536. To ensure 
proper handling, please reference INS No. 1906-98 on your 
correspondence. You may also submit comments to the Service 
electronically at insregs@usdoj.gov. When submitting comments 
electronically please include INS No. 1906-98 in the subject box.

Affairs Division, Headquarters Office of Detention and Removal,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Why is the Service Reopening the Comment Period?

    The Service is currently examining the appropriate infrastructure 
and policies for managing and developing its programs relating to 
unaccompanied minors. As part of that process, the Service has decided 
to offer the public an additional opportunity to comment on the 
proposed rule, and particularly invites comments that relate to issues 
that have come to the public's attention since the close of the 
original comment period in 1998. The Service is reopening the comment 
period to hear from the public on the following issues: determinations 
of who speaks for the child with respect to immigration matters, 
circumstances under which detention in a secure juvenile facility is 
necessary, and any additional ideas that may be helpful to minimize the 
number of juveniles who must be placed in Service custody.
