Effect of Jennings v. Rodriguez Decision on Detainee Advocacy - Recording (.MP3)
Jennings v. Rodriguez. The decision held that INA §§235(b), 236(a), and 236(c) do not allow periodic bond hearings for those subject to pre-final order mandatory detention because they are considered "arriving aliens" or because of certain types of criminal convictions. The Court did not decide the constitutionality of prolonged or indefinite detention in these cases. Our panel of experts will explain how this decision affects advocacy for clients subject to mandatory detention.
