Amicus Brief: Innovation Law Lab v. McAleenan

The forced return policy is a violation of domestic and international law that rejects basic safeguards intended to prevent the return of refugees to danger. The United States has committed to non-refoulement under the Refugee Convention, the Convention Against Torture, the 1980 Refugee Act, and the Immigration and Nationality Act. Even in summary immigration proceedings, the United States has sought to comply with those obligations.
