Fighting Back against ICE Constitutional and Legal Violations:
Supression of Evidence and Motions to Terminate Removal Proceedings.

In an immigration enforcement climate where “everyone is a priority,” ICE is frequently arresting undocumented immigrants who have lived in the country for many years without incident.  Many of these arrests arise from racial profiling, no-warrant home raids, or other forms of constitutional violations. Where immigrants have no traditional form of relief available, advocates must look to creative strategies to challenge the government’s evidence of alienage.

Legal Aid Justice Center is bringing national experts to Virginia to give an in-depth training on litigating motions to supress and motions to terminate removal proceedings.  We will discuss applicable Fourth Circuit and BIA caselaw, common fact patterns and constitutional, statuary and regulatory violations to look for, and practicalities of litigating these types of cases before the immigration courts in Arlington and Baltimore.
