Litigation of Immigration Detainers
1 General CLE
Speaker: Arash Jahanian, ACLU Attorney. Arash was the lead litigator in the law suit against the El Paso County Sheriff. He will be presenting on the successful ACLU litigation pertaining to immigration detainers here in El Paso County.
Talk: El Paso County has been the site of recent immigrants’ rights battles, reflecting the issues affecting the civil rights of immigrants throughout the country. This presentation will focus on the ongoing litigation regarding the El Paso County Sheriff’s past practice of holding individuals at the request of federal immigration officials. It will also cover other forms of local cooperation with immigration authorities, including agreements to have deputies act as ICE agents (which used to happen in El Paso County), and to house immigrant detainees in jails (which still happens in El Paso County). The presentation will also touch on other immigrant’s rights issues including conditions of confinement.
