Detention, due process, and vulnerable populations

AJC advocates for reform of detention policies, enhanced due process protections, and special protection for seekers, refugees and vulnerable populations.

Reform of detention policies, enhanced due process protections, and special protection for asylum seekers, refugees and vulnerable populations: Immigration policies should respect human rights and ensure due process for all persons. The long experience of the Jewish people as refugees from many lands and in many periods of our history has made us acutely aware of the imperative that the United States afford refuge and safety to those who come to our shores fleeing persecution or extreme hardship.
