What Are My Arguments? – Common Challenges to Detention Through Habeas and Possible Hurdles [01:02:18]

The federal habeas statute makes the writ available when an individual’s liberty is restrained “in violation of the Constitution or laws or treaties of the United States.” Habeas petitions can challenge procedural deficiencies in a noncitizen’s detention, such as classification under the wrong statutory detention scheme, as well as the merits of a bond decision, including improprieties in an ICE official or immigration judge’s weighing of the factors justifying detention. This panel will discuss common legal challenges brought through habeas and hot topics in current litigation. The panel will also touch on common hurdles, such as exhaustion and jurisdictional issues.
