I just received a report that yesterday a conference call was scheduled among Offices of Chief Counsel to discuss President Trump's new executive orders with respect to guidance for requests for prosecutorial discretion for individuals in removal proceedings. As of the writing of this blog there is no new news to report, however instructions may be issued as early as today or Monday, but it is my understanding that prosecutorial discretion is still being exercised by Office of Chief Counsel.

That said, there are also reports nationwide that certain local ICE offices have put a hold on processing prosecutorial discretion requests. I will keep you posted as new information becomes available.

Update: I just received a report that in Miami local Office of Chief Counsel is no longer considering prosecutorial discretion requests, nor are they willing to join in joint motions to reopen old deportation cases.

Update: All prosecutorial discretion requests are now currently on hold in Buffalo until further notice.
