Challenging the Expansion of Expedited Removal

9/27/19 Expedited removal is a procedure that allows a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) official to summarily deport a noncitizen without a hearing before an immigration judge or meaningful review.
On September 27, 2019, the court granted Plaintiffs’ motion for a preliminary injunction, which blocks the expansion of expedited removal from taking effect while the case moves forward. As a result, expedited removal currently remains limited to people who are within 100 miles from the border and have been in the U.S. for 14 days or fewer, and to those who arrived by sea.
