New Practice Advisory: Strategies for Suppressing Evidence and Terminating Removal Proceedings for Child Clients!

    Mar 31, 2015

    My three co-authors and I are very excited to share a new practice advisory on Strategies for Suppressing Evidence and Terminating Removal Proceedings for Child Clients published by the Vera Institute of Justice and written by Helen Lawrence, Kristen Jackson, Rex Chen, and Kathleen Glynn.  It provides comprehensive guidance to filing termination motions in immigration court to defend children.  Examples include where there is a defective Notice to Appear, the government failed to provide advisals on an I-770 form, and a wide range of government mistreatment of children in detention.  We also discuss practical tips for representing children.  We are very grateful for support from the Vera Institute and many people who helped us write the advisory.  We hope attorneys will consider these strategies to stand up for children by challenging unlawful government action as the government continues to place an unprecedented number of children in adversarial removal proceedings.
