Tahirih Statement on Expansion of Expedited Removal

The Tahirih Justice Center is deeply concerned by the administration’s expansion of expedited removal, which will apply to anyone arrested by ICE, anywhere in the United States. Exceptions will be made for immigrants who are able to prove that they have lived in the U.S. continuously for more than two years.

This rule compromises the safety and legal rights of immigrants, including survivors of gender-based violence. It worsens the climate of fear already felt by immigrant survivors and will discourage individuals from seeking help.
