Migrants who have no residence rights in Poland may be subject to the return procedure. Under this procedure, the possibility of obliging the immigrant to return to his/her country is examined and then his/her deportation is performed.
Nevertheless, not every newcomer can be deported. If the foreigner’s return to the country would violate his/her human rights or the rights of the child, he/she cannot be obliged to return. Such people should be granted the entitlement to stay in Poland for humanitarian reasons.
Stowarzyszenie Interwencji Prawnej is involved in strategic litigation and advocacy aimed at preventing unjustified returns. Therefore, we act to provide appropriate procedural guarantees to every foreigner who is subject to return proceedings. We represent those for whom return to the country would pose a threat to their safety, would be associated with the illegal severance of family ties, or would have a negative impact on the psychophysical development of their children. Additionally, we stand up for the fundamental rights of undocumented persons, e.g. access to medical care or to the justice system.
