The [Tuesday] Papers

*

"Mercedes Badia-Tavas, Chicago chair of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, said she was at O'Hare on Saturday 'in the mayhem,'" WBEZ reports.

Badia-Tavas spoke with Morning Shift's Tony Sarabia and explained the legal response to the order.

What were attorneys doing on site at O'Hare airport on Saturday?

Badia-Tavas: I was out there Saturday in the mayhem and they were predominantly either permanent residents that were being detained, held and questioned, or students. What attorneys were doing was kind of triaging to find out who was in the back part in the inspection section. There's primary inspection (and) secondary (inspection and) they were being held in secondary. In secondary, they have no right to counsel. Period. It is difficult to get information, so (the attorneys) were (speaking with) families who were in the (waiting) area asking questions: "Do you have someone back there that has not come out yet? Who are they?" And the families came forward.

When I got out there, there was a table - a collection of attorneys on laptops - preparing habeases. (They were) drafting habeases for individuals whose families had come up to the attorneys or the attorneys had sought them out.

What are some of the concerns you continue to hear from refugees and detainees or their families?

Badia-Tavas: The refugees in particular have gone through a lot. It's 24 months of screening before any refugee is on a plane to the United States and landing. So they've gone through extreme vetting.

Refugees are refugees. They've lost homes, they've gone through horrific, horrific military situations that I can't even imagine. Having them turned away, when they had no knowledge and they were coming to the United States as their new home, on a human level I find that horrific. Now they've been turned back and they don't know when they'll be able to arrive because it's an indefinite ban. That's a major concern for families here, for communities that were receiving them - everything. It's just chaos.

'Kill the Lawyers,' A Line Misinterpreted.

Justice John Paul Stevens, dissenting in Walters v. National Association of Radiation Survivors:

"That function was, however, well understood by Jack Cade and his followers, characters who are often forgotten and whose most famous line is often misunderstood. Dick's statement ('The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers') was spoken by a rebel, not a friend of liberty. See W. Shakespeare, King Henry VI, Part II, Act IV, scene 2, line 72. As a careful reading of that text will reveal, Shakespeare insightfully realized that disposing of lawyers is a step in the direction of a totalitarian form of government." 473 U.S. 305, 371, n.24 (1985)."
