Refusal To Concede Removability Blues

by Charles Gillman, Esq.

With apologies to Arlo Guthrie's "Alice's Restaurant" (1966):

You know, if one immigration attorney, just one immigration attorney refuses
to concede removability the Immigration Judge may get annoyed.
And if two immigration attorneys, two immigration attorneys do it, in harmony,
The IJ may not approve either of them and get really pissed off and scream.
But if three immigration attorneys refuse to concede removabiltity, three,
can you imagine, three immigration attorneys walking into immigration court
refusing to concede removability and walking out. The EOIR may think it's an
organization. And can you, can you imagine fifty immigration attorneys a day,
I said fifty immigration attorneys a day walking into immigration court and
refusing to concede removability and walking out. And friends they may think
it's a movement.

And that's what it is, the Refusal To Concede Removabilty Movement, and
all you got to do to join is walk into Immigration Court the next time
and refuse to concede removability.

You can get anything you want, at Immigration Court
(excepting Operation Predator cases)
You can get anything you want, at Immigration Court
Walk right in it's around the back
Just a half a mile from the railroad track
You can get anything you want, at Immigration Court
