Advocates File Supreme Court Amicus Brief in CODV Case

"This brief respectfully emphasizes to the Court that a ruling reversing the Court of Appeals based on a broad reading of “misdemeanor crime of domestic violence” could have profound effects on immigration law.  These include the unintended consequences of hurting immigrant domestic violence survivors who get swept into the criminal justice system, as well as their family members, and stifling the vital reporting of domestic abuse." - BRIEF FOR AMICI CURIAE ASISTA IMMIGRATION ASSISTANCE, THE IMMIGRANT DEFENSE PROJECT, THE IMMIGRANT LEGAL RESOURCE CENTER, THE NATIONAL IMMIGRATION PROJECT OF THE NATIONAL LAWYERS GUILD, AND THE WASHINGTON DEFENDER ASSOCIATION IN SUPPORT OF RESPONDENT in U.S. v. Castleman.
