Recently the handling of civil immigration detainers by local law departments has been heavily scrutinized.
AILA Doc No. 13032547 | Dated March 26, 2013
On 03/26/13 at 10:00 am (ET) AILA, along with the ACLU, First Focus, The Leadership Conference, National Immigration Law Center, Rights Working Group and Women Refugees Commission will host a briefing entitled, “Comprehensive Immigration Reform: Restoring Discretion and Fairness to the Immigration System.”
As Congress considers Comprehensive Immigration Reform, it is critical to restore much-needed discretion to immigration judges and immigration adjudicators, to ensure that the immigration system produces fair outcomes, preserves American families, and comports with our Constitution and nation’s values. The briefing will include a 10 minute sample from the forthcoming film American Exile, to be introduced by the film’s Director, John J. Valadez, and Producer, Carleen L. Hsu.
