Jeanne Atkinson, CLINIC Executive Director, and Adonia Simpson, Managing Attorney for Immigration Legal Services at CLINIC affiliate the Esperanza Center in Baltimore, discuss with the Baltimore Sun concerns about the “rocket docket” in Baltimore.

 

Ms. Atkinson is quoted:

“I believe that the impression that is being given to immigration judges is that the goal is to push these children through proceedings very quickly…The rocket dockets are vastly concerning for due process."

 

Since its inception two hundred years ago, the story of the Archdiocese of New York is an immigrant story – a tradition which continues today. For more than 30 years, the Archdiocese of New York has provided services to the foreign-born, including refugee resettlement and immigration legal services, through Catholic Charities Community Services (CCCS). As the immigrant and refugee population in the area has grown and changed, so has CCCS.
