Since opening its doors in 1996, Americans for Immigrant Justice has advocated for fair and family-friendly immigration policies at the local, state, and federal levels. In addition to organizing and working with our elected officials for fair and workable immigration policies, we also use impact litigation as a means to both investigate immigration enforcement practices and to bring about needed reform.
AI Justice advocates for improved immigration policies and practices, through impact litigation that changes state and national laws; groundbreaking reports that document real-life stories and provide evidence of civil liberties violations; and advocacy and education at all levels. We help shape and advance policies that protect our borders while safeguarding the basic civil and constitutional rights of Americans. AI Justice is a major force advocating for DREAMers and it played a pivotal role in the creation of the 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
AI Justice lawyers have brought dozens of lawsuits challenging unjust immigration policies and practices; compelling the government to disclose information key to reforming our broken immigration system; and challenging inhumane and unlawful detention conditions for men, women and children held in immigration detention.
