Growing EM Applications as America Adopts Ankle Monitors for Asylum Seekers

  • SuperCom, a global leading provider of traditional and digital identity solutions, is tapping into the growing use cases for electronic monitoring (“EM”) solutions globally
  • New adoption of the technology is seen in a move by the U.S. government to use ankle monitors to also track asylum seekers entering the country to help support and expedite their asylum process
  • For SuperCom, this is a further validation of the value of EM solutions, their versatility and overall effectiveness
  • SuperCom’s management anticipates a growth in the demand for its products as the conversation around these solutions continues to proliferate

SuperCom (NASDAQ: SPCB), a global leading provider of traditional and digital identity solutions offering advanced safety, identification, and security products and solutions to governments, is steadily advancing its technologies, primarily given the growing use case for electronic monitoring (“EM”) solutions globally. This stems from a deep understanding of the current global market for such solutions, which goes beyond only offender monitoring and also now covers tracking for migrant families seeking asylum in the U.S. The goal is to keep asylum seekers from skipping out on their required asylum hearings.

In previous administrations in the U.S., there was a push for the detainment of families in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”) facilities, a move that faced backlash. In addition, scientific studies showed that detaining minors, even with their parents, could cause developmental damage. The public outcry prompted the current administration to explore better approaches to tackling the issue (

The U.S. government has been transitioning from family detention to adopting ankle bracelets and traceable cell phones. This laid the foundation for the new program, which leverages electronic monitoring technology while using curfews and expedited asylum screenings. In an article published by The New York Times, it was noted that this was in response to the growing migrant situation, with the country having recorded over 2.5 million migrant encounters at the southwest land border in the 2023 fiscal year alone.

The U.S. government’s adoption of EM within ICE has been geared toward keeping track of thousands of migrants and making rulings in a make-or-break step of the asylum process. SuperCom sees this move as further validation of the overall effectiveness, viability, and dependability of EM solutions. It also presents new opportunities that other governments worldwide can leverage to expedite huddles in their legal processes and track and hold accountable specific persons of interest.

SuperCom has made a name for itself by offering superior EM solutions and a whole suite to support them. With a focus on offenders of domestic violence, the company has proven itself on many occasions and in different countries globally, affirming the value of its products and services and the overall viability of EM solutions.

As the conversation about these solutions continues to proliferate, SuperCom anticipates potential growth in the demand for its products. In addition, as the solutions find their way into other application areas beyond offender monitoring, as is the case with the U.S. immigration program, the company anticipates that its offerings can address even more potential use cases.
