H.R.3239: Humanitarian Standards for Individuals in Customs and Border Protection Custody Act
Humanitarian Standards for Individuals in Customs and Border Protection Custody Act (H.R. 3239) would aim to support the health and wellness of migrants held in federal custody. The bill would order Costumes and Border Patrol (CBP) to conduct an initial health screening of each migrant in custody to identify those with acute conditions and high-risk vulnerabilities and to provide appropriate healthcare. The bill also would impose certain standards relating to such requirements, such as the minimum amount of drinking water for each detainee and the acceptable temperature range of the shelters.
S. 2135 is the Senate companion bill introduced by Sen. Tom Udall.
