The Department of Homeland Security Cancels Civil Penalties for Failure-To-Depart

April 24th, 2021

In the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) announcement canceling these financial penalties, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas said:

“There is no indication that these penalties promoted compliance with noncitizens’ departure obligations. We can enforce our immigration laws without resorting to ineffective and unnecessary punitive measures.”

DHS also announced Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will work with the Department of Treasury to cancel the existing debts of those who had been fined.
