9/11/15 AILA Doc. No. 15110971. Detention & Bond, Removal & Relief

The American Immigration Council and AILA filed an amicus brief in Guerra v. Shanahan urging the Second Circuit to affirm the district court’s holding that a person with a reinstated order of removal who has yet to receive a final administrative decision on a withholding application is detained under INA §236(a), and is thus eligible to seek release on bond from the IJ.
