Weekly, Dawn M.
MetadataShow full item record
After the unprecedented terrorist attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001, the government responded with a vast effort aimed at investigation and prevention, which continues to this day. As part of that response, several hundred resident aliens were rounded up for alleged immigration violations and detained, pending removal hearings. This case note will consider the opinion in North Jersey Media Group, Inc. v. Ashcroft which concerns the question of whether the government may issue a blanket closure order for those deportation hearings and bar the public and press from attending.
