Abusing Public Health Powers at the Border: Litigating “Title 42” Deportations Before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights
Join us via Zoom for a panel discussion, Abusing Public Health Powers at the Border: Litigating “Title 42” Deportations Before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights.
The Trump administration made unprecedented use of public health laws to circumvent statutory limits on immigration enforcement that were intended to protect human rights. The Biden administration has continued to rely on this dubious authority to deport asylum seekers without the hearings that refugee laws and treaties require. This panel will discuss ongoing challenges in federal court and at the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, from the perspectives of statutory law and international law.
