New Fact Sheet from Vera Institute of Justice on Immigration Court Appearance Rates

Vera research

A new fact sheet by Nina Siulc and Noelle Smart of the Vera Institute of Justice summarizes new evidence showing that most immigrants appear for their immigration court hearings. The report includes data from Vera's Safety and Fairness for Everyone (SAFE) Initiative that provides free representation through a universal access model of representation. Vera researchers found that 98 percent of SAFE clients released from custody have continued to appear for their court hearings. Read the full report for additional information on related research, including Vera's ongoing evaluation of the New York Immigrant Family Unity Project (NYIFUP).

This is what rational governance could look like at DHS and EOIR if we evict the kakistocracy of malicious, White Nationalist, incompetents and replace them with qualified “practical experts” in immigration, human rights, due process, and effective, non-biased law enforcement.
Due Process Forever!
