With the case management program that has helped thousands of asylum seekers to escape harsh conditions in their native countries, now set to close in two weeks, asylum-seekers will likely have to end up in “intensive supervision” programs.

The intensive supervision programs cost less per person – about $7 per person in detention, versus $36 for one family – because they remove resources for those families.

The case management program connects families with legal representation, guidance through the court system, and help to connect them with housing and care.
