ICE Policing

Background

In connection with our work on Community Defense from ICE Raids and Deportation, IDP engages in litigation efforts to uncover and challenge immigration policing practices. IDP monitors ICE raids in the New York City area and supports immigrants who seek to challenge their arrests before the federal courts and immigration agencies. IDP also supports systemic litigation before the federal and New York State courts to challenge anti-immigrant policies and practices.
