NILA in Action
The Kathryn O. Greenberg Immigration Justice Clinic at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, and NILA submitted a lengthy comment in response to proposed regulations related to three important legal mechanisms that are available to noncitizens in removal proceedings: motions to stay removal, motions to reopen, and motions to reconsider. The proposed rules would impose new and arbitrary procedural hurdles; make seeking reopening and reconsideration significantly more burdensome; and result in the denial of meritorious claims for relief and protection from unlawful deportation.

NILA is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Children’s Immigration Law Academy of the American Bar Association, or CILA. The partnership has three main components – trainings, technical assistance, and resource creation – to be delivered over the course of the coming year. We look forward to collaborating with, and contributing to, CILA’s ability to build capacity for those working to advance the rights of children seeking protection. More here!
