Due process for immigrants

Immigrants have due process rights in immigration court. For example, the Third Circuit (which covers New Jersey) has ruled that immigrants have the right to each of the following at immigration hearings: (1) a factfinding based on a record produced before the decisionmaker, (2) the opportunity to make arguments on his behalf, and (3) an individualized determination of his interests. Abdulai v. Ashcroft, 239 F.3d 542, 549 (3d Cir. 2001.)
