The ACLU-Southern California , Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights, and Mayer Brown recently released a report on the Controlled Application Review and Resolution Program (CARRP) detailing how DHS, through CARRP, delays and denies applications for immigration benefits, including naturalization, of eligible individuals from Arab, Middle Eastern, Muslim, and South Asian communities.
The CARRP program directs agency officers to delay and ultimately deny the immigration benefits of applications of individuals who are flagged for “national security concerns,” sweeping in individuals who are blacklisted based on lawful religious activity, national origin, and innocuous associations. Applications are placed on indefinite hold or rejected based on unfounded reasons.
AILA is interested in hearing about any cases where you believe your client may have been subjected to CARRP. Please send case examples to firstname.lastname@example.org, subject line “CARRP Cases.” Please include name, receipt number, form type, and a brief description as to why you believe this case was being held under the CARRP program.
