    Immigration does not work on emotions. the whole issue is based upon the emotions. I understand the situation of being incarcernated in USCIS detention center.
    Order of supervision does not worked the way you are asking. there are strict guidelines to be followed, its not in immigration officers hand to release without fullfilling the law requirements. Immigration officers are bound to follow the 8 C.F.R. they will be following the section 241.5. first of all alien will be detained till they have any case pending. And no one can issue them a "Post order custody Review", while case is pending. you both brother and sister have case pending.
    Once the case is decided then ther will be 90 days period starts in which USCIS try to deport you guys and you guys has to comply with full co-operation of obtaining travel document, as well the other requirements mentioned in section 241.5. if USCIS cannot deport you in 90 days and you are not danger to the community, comply with the requirement of full co-operation, never had fight in detention etc. have someone who can give you shelter if you released from Detention etc then only Orderof supervision will be issued.
    I can understand that you have appeal pending with circuit court, that you were chiled when you were brought into this country and now you are become an adult.
    You base for fight will be" child cannot make their own Domain" he/she must be on parents piggy ride" if you have these argument and supported by the cases then you can win.
    In detention, you guys have access to the Law library. do yourself a favour and learn the cases similar to you so you can know what should be done in your case.,Yoga is useful to calm yourself down because emotion runs very high in detention. but LAw is the one who can help you while in dention.
    Regardless of 7 months or year or years. POCR will not start unless you stop filing motions/appeals. Its not immigrations fault that you bewcome 19 years old in this country and never tried to get legalized, nor your people thought about it.
    Its a discussion, not a legal advise..

    I understand just how upsetting it must be for this girl and her brothers, but at the end of the day they are illegal and breaking the law.

    Once they become 18 years of age they occur illegal presence in their own right.

    Why can't they just be deported now and then they will be reunited with their family !

    Until the law is changed they , like the rest of us have to obey the law.

    you and your irresponsible family broke our laws, ignored our rules and no amount of tears (phony ones, at that) can change that simple fact...

    People, have some mercy. This is the perfect example, why we need to fix our broken laws. This child had been here all her life and she is as American or maybe more then u guys as any US citizen. That's why we need CIR, so people who have been here long enough and have proven to be a good moral and citizen, they should be given a chance. And MOHAN, for your kind information, from last 20 years there has been no program or reform acted thru which people can legalize themselves. Thats why everyone is whinning. These republicans have been dragging all the immigration issues. It's really easy to critisize someone when u are not it their shoes. Trust me people do want to legalize themselves and I believe they already have been punished for so many years without being out of status. For God sake, this is not the end of the world, we are talking about the future of the kids, who only know America as their own country. We need to get DREAM ACT APPROVED SOON.SO, CALLMMMMM DOWN. And I Believe these kids will be more valuable and asset to this country's future then u and anyone who only crtisize and not stand for Truth and humane act. All deserves atleast one chance. Don't u think.

    my email went something like this:

    "Dear ICE officials: please rid the US of A of these visa cheats. They have not played by the rules, they refuse to obey our laws, we need to put AMerican children ahead of these lowlifes...do not shed a single tear for these scum because they have been scamming benefits from hard working, law-abiding US citizen taxpayers, so enough is enough. Ship all of these whining cheats back to their own country tomorrow"

    Thanks.

    A concerned citizen
