NIPNLG Practice Advisory: Remedies to DHS Enforcement at Courthouses and Other Protected Locations

April 13, 2017 (1 min read)

NIPNLG, Apr. 12, 2017 - "Few are aware that Congress provided statutory remedies in 8 U.S.C. § 1229(e) that may enable an individual who the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) arrests at certain protected locations to terminate removal proceedings. At a time when DHS enforcement is terrifying immigrant communities, 8 U.S.C. § 1229(e) may provide a potential mechanism to enable noncitizens avoid removal. The advisory discusses the statutory protections, suggests a termination remedy for violations, and addresses selected arguments that DHS might make to oppose termination."
