Declaration from Paromita Shah

The court had not posted any information about the Artesia docket. The courtrooms were locked. Judge Hladylowycz was holding master calendar hearings and bond hearings. After watching those hearings, I asked Judge Hladylowycz if I could attend the review of negative credible fear hearings. Judy Hladylowycz told me that those proceedings were now closed. She said that someone had brought the issue of public access to Artesia review hearings to the attention of EOIR Headquarters and that EOIR Public Affairs Office had issued instructions to close all Artesia hearings.
