COVID-19 and Immigrant Justice
About the Research
The COVID-19 pandemic and the unique set of circumstances that come with it creates new challenges and exacerbates existing ones for those seeking justice within the immigration system. The goal of this research is to analyze the barriers to justice emerging from the pandemic and provide recommendations that Congress and the Administration can adopt to address these concerns.
To sufficiently address the impacts of the pandemic, the research is divided into two reports. The first report focuses on the impact of the pandemic on non-detained immigrants currently in the immigration court system. The second report focuses on the effect of the pandemic on immigration detention.
