On Sept. 4, 2020, the Board of Immigration Appeals posted an invitation for amicus briefs asking whether due process is satisfied when the record does not indicate that asylum seekers subject to the Migrant Protection Protocols have received advisals about when and where to present themselves at the border. CLINIC and other immigration legal service providers — Asylum Defense Project, Al Otro Lado, Aldea, Border Kindness, Florence Immigrant & Refugee Rights Project, Immigrant's Rights & Human Trafficking Program of Boston University School of Law, Immigrant Defenders Law Center, Jewish Family Services, Mabel Center for Immigrant Justice, Project Corazon Matamoros, Taylor Levy Law — working at the border wrote a brief that argued that a proper advisal (tear sheet) is critical for those subject to MPP to understand when and how to present themselves to attend their court dates.
