Holly Cooper Quoted by Law360 on Expedited Removal Orders

Holly S. Cooper, Co-director of the UC Davis School of Law Immigration Law Clinic, commented for Law360 on the potential for increased numbers of immigrants to be subjected to expedited removal as a result of President Trump’s recent executive orders on immigration.

Expanding expedited removal could allow the Trump administration to avoid having to go to immigration court in some cases, Cooper said, which could allow them to avoid a massive backlog of immigration cases. “The quickest way to get a removal order is to place someone in expedited removal, where there's almost very little, limited judicial oversight over the process,” Cooper said.
