NILA in Action
NILA, in collaboration with Perkins Coie, NWIRP, and the ACLU, filed an amicus brief with the Supreme Court in Sanchez v. Mayorkas on March 1, 2021. In that case, the Supreme Court will decide whether certain holders of Temporary Protected Status are eligible to apply for lawful permanent resident status. Read our amicus brief here.
NILA is pleased to release our latest practice advisory which focuses on challenging immigration benefit and other delays in federal court. This advisory, which details both claims brought under the Mandamus Statute and the Administrative Procedure Act, is issued jointly with the American Immigration Council. Read the advisory here.
NILA’s latest practice advisory focuses on seeking monetary compensation under the Federal Tort Claims Act for the negligent acts or omissions, and, in some instances, intentional misconduct, of federal immigration officers. Originally written in 2013 by Priya Patel and NILA’s executive director, NILA staff updated the advisory in collaboration with NIPNLG staff. Read the advisory here.
