ICE hold preventing inmate from Education

Recommended Posts

My father is in prison and he wants to take classes to help him rehabilitate himself. He had passed the test that allowed him to take classes but was unfortunately told that he could not take the classes due to an ICE hold. He has been trying to fight this but he has been denied. Is it legal to deny an inmate from education even with an ICE hold? He is a permanent resident and as of now, it has not been ruled that he will be deported or not. So technically he is still a permanent resident. I did some research, and there are International Laws that say it is a violation of rights to prevent an inmate from taking classes, whether they are an immigrant or not, however, I am not sure how to enforce international law. Could anyone give me some feed back please?

International law is enforced, if  at all, in the international court of justice in the Hague Netherlands. Often, courts of various countries, including the US, do no recognize international law or decisons out of the Hague. Good luck, and I hope you have deep pockets if you are going to try to follow this international law.

Do you think there is another way to go about this besides through international law? I am just having a hard time trying to figure out why an ICE hold would prevent him from taking classes. Education is supposed to rehabilitate inmates so that they may have a better chance of adapting to society when they get out. I feel as though it is wrong for them to prevent him from this opportunity. 

I have tried to research this issue, but had no luck of finding much.

I disagree.  "International law" encompasses a lot of things, including treaties and conventions to which the U.S. is a party, and things that that are enforced and applied all the time in courts all over the U.S.

Please cite the specific law(s) in question.

Hire an attorney to represent your father.

I assumed he was referring to a law to which the United States was not a party.  You are correct, international law is a lot more comprehensive than I assumed.  I guess that is what you get when you assume.
