ACLU Comment on New Trump Expedited Removal Action
NEW YORK — The following comment is in response to the Trump administration notice massively expanding expedited removal of immigrants that is set for publication tomorrow.
Omar Jadwat, director of the Immigrants’ Rights Project of the American Civil Liberties Union, said:
“Under this unlawful plan, immigrants who have lived here for years would be deported with less due process than people get in traffic court. We will sue to end this policy quickly.”
