The report “Justice Detained, Justice Denied: Immigration and Customs Enforcement Prevents Immigrants from Fighting Unlawful Criminal Convictions,” authored by the Immigrant Rights Clinic at New York University School of Law and commissioned by Families for Freedom, reveals the fundamental contradiction between New York state and constitutional laws designed to protect people from unlawful convictions, and the deportation machinery of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
