The Practising Law Institute is offering a free webcast of a live presentation from San Francisco entitled Motions to Suppress and to Terminate Removal Proceedings: Litigating Fourth Amendment Violations in Immigration Court on May 26, 2017 from 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm.

Why You Should Attend

Threats of increased immigration enforcement, promises of increased hiring of immigration and border patrol agents, and the elimination of “priority enforcement” categories likely mean a return to unconstitutional practices such as racial profiling and unreasonable searches and seizures, forced entry into homes, and workplace raids. The constitution provides a remedy for egregious constitutional violations by immigration authorities: immigration courts may exclude evidence obtained through such means and terminate the removal proceedings. 

What You Will Learn

The program will cover the legal standards and immigration court procedures that govern suppression and termination motions. Sample briefs and checklists will be provided for proving the elements necessary to succeed in a motion to suppress and related motions, including motions to terminate removal proceedings.

Who Should Attend

Suppression hearings are based on constitutional law and therefore are well-suited pro bono opportunities for immigration and non-immigration attorneys alike. Anyone who is interested in providing pro bono representation to individuals whose constitutional rights were violated in the course of an arrest—either alone or with a group that is representing multiple people arrested in a mass enforcement action—would benefit from this training.
