  • Tahirih Applauds Rep. Lofgren’s Bill to Restructure the Immigration Court System 

    February 3rd, 2022

    Today, Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) introduced a bill that would reshape the nation’s immigration courts by making them independent of the Department of Justice (DOJ), led by the U.S. attorney general.

The Tahirih Justice Center believes this bill is an important step to ensure a fair process for immigrants where matters of life and liberty are at stake.
