  • Expanded List of STEM Eligible Degrees Announced by Sheela Murthy et al.

    Expanded List of STEM Eligible Degrees Announced by Sheela Murthy et al. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) recently expanded the list of approved degree programs that are eligible for the 17-month Optional Practical Training (OPT) extensions. The ICE announcement is available online. Background: Basics of STEM Extensions In April 2008, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) created a new program allowing certain students to obtain extensions of the standard 12-month OPT period. Under the new provisions, students completing designated science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) programs become eligible for a 17-month OPT extension. OPT is normally authorized for a maximum of 12 months after completion of a post-secondary degree program. Graduates of STEM-approved degree programs can file for an additional 17 months, for a total OPT period of 29 months. According to ICE guidance, each student is eligible for only one 17-month STEM extension. To implement the new program, ICE created a list of degree programs qualified for the extended OPT period. The original STEM degree list was expanded on May 12, 2011. The new list of expanded STEM degree programs is available online. New Computer and Engineering Degrees Added The updated list of eligible STEM degrees includes a number of new computer and engineering degrees. Many of these degrees are designated with the term "other." This is a catch-all designation within various fields of study to include programs that would not fit within any of the more specific designations. These degrees are: Computer and Information Sc...

  • Article: Immigration Judges’ Union Fights for Judicial Independence By Karolina Walters
    ImmigrationDaily
    Immigration Judges’ Union Fights for Judicial Independence by Karolina Walters The National Association of Immigration Judges (NAIJ), the union that represents the nation’s immigration judges, is challenging the government’s decision to remove an immigration judge from a well-known case and replace him with a judge who immediately ordered the immigrant in the case deported. NAIJ’s grievance addresses the treatment of one immigration judge, but its resolution will have implications for judicial independence throughout the entire immigration court system. The grievance was filed on behalf of Philadelphia-based immigration judge Steven A. Morley, who was presiding over the case of Mr. Reynaldo Castro-Tum. Castro-Tum’s case rose to national importance earlier this year when Attorney General Jeff Sessions chose to refer the case to himself to reconsider the Board of Immigration Appeals’ previous decision in the case. In reconsidering the decision, Sessions effectively eliminated judges’ use of administrative closure, a docket management tool. Sessions sent Castro-Tum’s case back to Judge Morley, noting that the immigration court order Castro-Tum removed if he did not appear at his next hearing. Castro-Tum did not appear at the next hearing. However, Judge Morley continued the case to resolve whether Castro-Tum received adequate notice of the hearing. Due process requires, at a minimum, that an individual be given notice of proceedings and an opportunity to be heard by a judge. But before the next hearing could take place, the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) replaced Judge Morley with an Assistant Chief Immigration Judge who ordered Castro-Tum removed when he did not appear at court again. In their grievance, NAIJ asserts that the decision to remove Judge Morley from Castro-Tum’s case and reassign many other cases from his docket resulted in unacceptable interference with judicial independence. The grievance specifically claims that EOIR’s actions violate immigration judges’ authority under the regulations to exerci...
