Amicus Brief: Dia v Ashcroft
Third Circuit: Human Rights First along with the American Immigration Law Foundation (AILF) filed an amicus brief in the case of Dia v Ashcroft. The brief addresses the constitutional and administrative law repercussions of the “affirmance without opinion” procedure utilized in the Dia case by the Board of Immigration Appeals. Human Rights First and AILF express in the brief concerns about the fairness of this process, under which single Board members rubberstamp the results of decisions by Immigration Judges. Human Rights First was represented by Steven Kolleeny and Diane Kassleman of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP.
