Habeas Class Actions: Current Opportunities and Challenges in Immigration Law Immigration
By Ellyn Jameson

Just as the large number of post-conviction habeas petitions is related to the massive size of the U.S. criminal justice system, as immigration detention has expanded in scope and size over the past several years, habeas petitions challenging that confinement have increased, as well.
