NILA and Allies Urge Supreme Court to Compel DHS to Comply with Its Obligation to Provide Proper Notice of Immigration Hearings

NILA, in collaboration with Wilmer Hale and Building One Community—the Center for Immigration Opportunity, the Florence Immigrant & Refugee Rights Project, the Immigrant Defense Project, Immigrant Legal Defense, the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, Pangea Legal Services, and the Rocky Mountain Immigrant Advocacy Network, filed an amicus brief with the Supreme Court in Campos Chaves v. Garland and Garland v. Singh, cases which address whether individuals can rescind in absentia removal orders for lack of notice where they did not receive an Notice to Appear (NTA) that includes the time and place of their hearing. In our brief, we explain how the statutory history of the NTA statute and the in absentia statute supports granting rescission motions in these circumstances, as well as the practical problems that result where the U.S. Department of Homeland Security fails to include time and place information on NTAs.
