Madam Speaker, we want to thank Amnesty International for its report. We will certainly take the time to read through it.
I do want to make a few reminders. Immigrant detention is a measure of last resort. It is used only in certain circumstances. Furthermore, long-term detention is used only when the individual in detention poses a danger to the public, when alternatives to detention do not adequately mitigate that danger, when there are doubts about the individual's identity, or when it is unlikely that the individual will show up for their legal hearing.
All detention decisions are reviewed by a member of the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada.
