The stories of the community members and clients described in this brief demonstrate the harsh consequences that prolonged detention has on individuals who lack meaningful access to constitutionally adequate bond hearings. Amici respectfully urge this Court to consider the unjust impact that this interpretation has on the immigrant communities we represent and uphold the decision of the Ninth Circuit in this case.

Respectfully submitted,
