Due Process Resource Page
The current immigration removal system—from arrest to hearing to deportation and beyond—does not reflect American values of due process and fundamental fairness. In fact, the immigration removal system lacks nearly all of the due process protections that come into play in the U.S. criminal justice system.
With this in mind, we've created this resource page to draw attention to issues surrounding due process in the immigration system, including reports on the problems and flaws of the current system, as well as possible fixes.
