    The Executive Office for Immigration Review Announces Changes Due to the Lapse in Federal Government Funding

    FALLS CHURCH, VA – During the period of October 1-16, 2013, the Executive Office for Immigration Review was operating in a limited capacity due to the lapse in government funding.

    Immigration courts nationwide continued to adjudicate detained cases but all other functions were suspended. Any filing with the immigration court related to a non-detained case that was due October 1-16, 2013 will be considered timely filed if it is received by the appropriate court within fifteen days of the date of this notice (i.e., November 8, 2013). No request for, or documentation supporting, an extension is required if the appropriate court receives the originally-due filing prior to the close of business on November 8, 2013. EOIR will issue new notices of hearing for those cases affected by the lapse in government funding. Cases will be scheduled for available dates on the docket, but will not be scheduled in a way that would cause disruption to previously scheduled cases.

    The Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) processed only filings related to detained cases during the lapse in government funding. The BIA did accept all filings during that period. Also, as announced in September (http://go.usa.gov/WxGQ), EOIR transitioned to zip code 20530 on October 1, 2013. Due to the convergence of those two events, the BIA will consider timely filed any filing that meets both of these criteria:

    1. the filing was due during the month of October 2013; and
    2. the BIA receives the filing on or before November 1, 2013.

    No request for, or documentation supporting, an extension is required for filings that arrive at the BIA by November 1, 2013. Filings that arrive after November 1, 2013, are subject to normal filing deadlines. If timeliness is an issue for any filings that the BIA receives after November 1, 2013, parties should consult the BIA Practice Manual, available on-line at http://go.usa.gov/Wx7j, for guidance.

    The Office of the Chief Administrative Hearing Officer (OCAHO) maintained its ability to issue subpoenas and accept complaints required to be filed by statutory deadlines. OCAHO granted all requests for extensions of time or temporary stays of proceedings made during this period, and accepted all filings received. Future requests for extensions or stays will be decided on a case-by-case basis.

    The Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) is an agency within the Department of Justice. Under delegated authority from the Attorney General, immigration judges and the Board of Immigration Appeals interpret and adjudicate immigration cases according to United States immigration laws. EOIR’s immigration judges conduct administrative court proceedings in immigration courts located throughout the nation. They determine whether foreign-born individuals—whom the Department of Homeland Security charges with violating immigration law—should be ordered removed from the United States or should be granted relief from removal and be permitted to remain in this country. The Board of Immigration Appeals primarily reviews appeals of decisions by immigration judges. EOIR’s Office of the Chief Administrative Hearing Officer adjudicates immigration-related employment cases. EOIR is committed to ensuring fairness in all of the cases it adjudicates.

    • News: Re-Registration Period Now Open for Temporary Protected Status for Yemen
      ImmigrationDaily
      Re-Registration Period Now Open for Temporary Protected Status for Yemen Versión en español WASHINGTON — U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced today that current beneficiaries of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) under Yemen’s designation who want to maintain their status through the extension date of March 3, 2020, must re-register between August 14, 2018, and October 15, 2018. Re-registration procedures, including how to renew employment authorization documents (EADs), have been published in the Federal Register and on uscis.gov/tps . All applicants must submit Form I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Status. Applicants may also request an EAD by submitting Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, at the time they file Form I-821, or separately at a later date. Like all USCIS forms, both forms are free for download from the USCIS website at uscis.gov/tps . USCIS will issue new EADs with a March 3, 2020, expiration date to eligible Yemen TPS beneficiaries who timely re-register and apply for EADs. Given the timeframes involved with processing TPS re-registration applications, however, we recognize that not all re-registrants will receive new EADs before their current EADs expire on Sept. 3, 2018. Accordingly, we have automatically extended the validity of EADs for 180 days, through March 2, 2019. ...
