Gregory Chen Sounds Alarm on Expedited Removal

Gregory Chen (’98), Senior Director of Government Relations at the American Immigration Lawyers Association, was quoted by / The Arizona Republic exposing dangers and raising due process concerns over the expansion of expedited removal following the end of Title 42 (“‘Expedited Removal’ Explained: US Will Fast Track Deportations after Title 42 Ends,” May 11, updated May 12). “Is there a fair shot at the person being able to seek asylum? Because if they can’t get legal counsel, if they are held in detention, it’s going to make it so much harder. And people are going to be sent back to life threatening circumstances. People’s lives will really very much be at risk.”
