Supreme Court Brief Against Statute That Violates First Amendment rights

January 22, 2020

Brief filed in United States v. Sineneng-Smith

Our amicus brief United States v. Sineneng-Smith was filed to urge the Supreme Court to strike down a federal statute that makes it a felony to “encourage or induce” individuals to enter or remain in the U.S. unlawfully. This statute has the potential to chill the everyday work of immigrants’ rights advocates and service providers who often assist undocumented individuals, their families, and their communities. The brief was joined by 33 community-based, advocacy, and social services organizations.
