Understanding INA §§235 and 236 and the Implications for Detention and Parole Issues
Following the Supreme Court's ruling in Jennings v. Rodriguez, 138 S.Ct. 830 (2018), which implemented a strict construction of mandatory detention for applicants for admission, litigation has spurred relating to habeas, state challenges to Biden Administration policies, and whether released applicants for admission can pursue adjustment of status. For this quarterly call, we will review the statutory interpretation behind the holding in Jennings, how it has been used to pursue relief for clients, and ongoing litigation relating to the meaning of these statutes and the possible implications of those cases.
Though developed for Federal Court Litigation Section members, this meeting is open to all AILA members. Joining the Federal Court Litigation Section is easy and there is no application needed. Simply go to My AILA and select "Update Sections" under the My Membership questions.
