In Tucson on Feb. 19, AFSC joined a coalition protesting at the federal courthouse seeking an end to the federal program "Operation Streamline." Under the Bush-era policy, in certain sectors of the border, every immigrant who crosses the illegally is charged in the criminal courts instead of the civil immigration system. Under Streamline, courts hear dozens of cases at one time, which has raised concerns that the program robs immigrants of their rights, including the right to due process.
