Equal Justice Under Law

This critical lawsuit aims to relieve hundreds of people currently detained unjustly pending immigration proceedings. The class action lawsuit includes immigrants detained in Richwood, Louisiana with Department of Justice immigration proceedings in Batavia, New York. Individuals who are not being charged with any criminal offense are being held often for lengthy periods of time due to an inability to pay arbitrary and exorbitant bond fees.
