Ketanji Brown Jackson on Immigration

 

 


Due process for immigrants regardless of legal status

Judge Jackson has been a steadfast supporter of civil rights. In 2019, she ordered the Department of Homeland Security not to expand deportations without a court hearing. She has defended immigrants' rights to due process of law, regardless of legal status.

Trump administration set asylum seeking standards too high

In October 2020, Jackson sided with immigrant advocacy groups who sued the Trump administration over a lesson plan used to train federal immigration officers who screen potential asylum seekers slated for fast-track deportations. The challengers argued the language adopted in 2019 wrongly raised the bar too high for the initial round of vetting to see if a person had shown a "credible fear" of persecution in their home country. Jackson agreed. The Justice Department decided not to appeal.
