Rep. Levin (D-MI09) Introduces H.R 2537
Congressman Andy Levin (D-MI09) introduced a bill extending the amount of time available to Iraqi nationals residing within the U.S. to have their cases heard in immigration court prior to deportation.
At a press conference, Congressman Levin told reporters, “Iraqi nationals with orders for removal must have the time it takes to have their cases heard individually in immigration court. Numerous Iraqi nationals, including many Chaldean Christians, will face persecution for their religion, their ethnicity or their ties to America if they are forced back to Iraq against their will. It is our duty to do everything we can to protect them.”
