Supreme Court Protects Immigrants' Access to Court Review>>



 >>



January 20, 2010 >>





Washington D.C. - The American Immigration Council applauds
today's U.S. Supreme Court decision ensuring that immigrants facing deportation
have fair process in the review of their cases. The Court ruled that
individuals who seek to reopen their deportation orders have the right to
appeal to the federal courts if the immigration court refuses to hear the
appeal. The Court's decision protects immigrants' access to federal court
review and affirms the role of the courts in our system of checks and balances
on government power.>>





The case, Kucana v. Holder, was brought by an asylum seeker who filed a motion
to reopen his removal proceedings because of changed circumstances in his
request for asylum. A motion to reopen is a procedural mechanism that
allows individuals to present new evidence to an immigration judge.  

 >>



"The Supreme Court's
decision reaffirms that immigrants are entitled to fair process"
said Beth Werlin, Attorney at the American Immigration
Council's Legal Action Center. "Given the stakes involved in
immigration cases, federal court review is an important check on the executive
branch and is a necessary layer of protection for individuals who are facing
removal from the United States."

Court's decision at the Legal Action Center's Supreme Court Update webpage.
