    Article: Salvadoran Witness Protection and Its Shortcoming by Robert Kirkland

    Salvadoran Witness Protection and Its Shortcomings by Robert Kirkland The purpose of this post is to look at the Salvadoran Witness Protection program and evaluate who it serves and how effectively it safeguards those who turn evidence against gangs or other criminal elements in El Salvador. In immigration hearings, Salvadorans facing removal and who fear retribution from criminals they turned evidence against often need to justify the inadequacy of police or other legal protections in...

  • Article: Niz-Chavez and Jurisdiction? by Geoffrey A. Hoffman

    Article: Niz-Chavez and Jurisdiction? by Geoffrey A. Hoffman

    Niz-Chavez and Jurisdiction? by Geoffrey A. Hoffman The Supreme Court's decision earlier this week in  Niz-Chavez v. Garland is potentially revolutionary. First, it rejected the impoverished and incorrect interpretation by circuit courts and the BIA of Pereira v. Sessions (20-18) about the alleged "curing" of a defective Notice to Appear (NTA) by a subsequent notice of hearing. Such an interpretation was not at all supported by Pereira and indeed foreclosed by that decision. Furthermore, more importantly, if interpreted correctly, it may upend the jurisdiction in many cases of the immigration court. I want...
