Comment: Due Process For All - ACLU reports that Cheikh Diop was detained for 1,072 days - or nearly three years - while challenging the government's attempt to remove him to Senegal, a country he had fled 20 years earlier after being tortured by Senegalese military forces. Because of his prolonged detention, Mr. Diop lost his longtime job as a cook at TGI Friday's and was separated from his four U.S. citizen children - all because the government refused to grant him the basic due process of a bond hearing. Today, the ACLU won an important victory on behalf of Mr. Diop and hundreds of other detainees subjected to the government's practice of detaining immigrants for prolonged periods of time without bond hearings - sometimes for years on end - while they defend their legal rights to remain in the country. In Diop v. ICE, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit held that For the following reasons, we conclude that the statute authorizes only detention for a reasonable period of time. After that, the Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution requires that the Government establish that continued detention is necessary to further the purposes of the detention statute. We urge the Obama Administration to review all its deportation practices in light of this ruling that the Due Process Clause applies to everyone regardless of their immigration status.
