Amicus Brief Filed in United States v. Sineneng-Smith

The Tahirih Justice Center and partner organizations filed an amicus brief in the Supreme Court of the United States in United States v. Sineneng-Smith. The case centers on the validity of a statute prohibiting any speech that “encourages or induces” a noncitizen to “come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard” that the noncitizen’s presence here “is or will be in violation of law.” The brief emphasizes that the statute violates the First Amendment because it purports to criminalize accurate and ethical advice given to survivors and other immigrants by lawyers, social workers, and other advisers.
