Unpub. BIA Suppression Victory (Memphis)

Sean Lewis writes: "We just won a suppression case at the BIA which you may want to share. The case involved a racially-motivated traffic stop by a Metro Nashville Police officer in a 287(g) jurisdiction. The BIA held that indeed the suppression in immigration proceedings could be linked to the initial traffic stop, even though the Metro Police Department is a separate agency from DHS/ICE and the Sheriff acting under 287(g).  Remanded to consider whether the traffic stop was egregious under the Fourth Amendment."

  1. For those of us living and working in Nashville, this is great news. Let's hope the IJ gets it right.
