As many of you know, it appears that ICE will be significantly amending its practice on stays for U applicants, and we believe they plan to completely eliminate the prima facie (PF) system for Us, including those in detention and removal. In this webinar, Late-Breaking Webinar After the new ICE Memo: Now how do we stop survivor removals?, we will discuss emerging strategies for stopping survivor removals in light of these developments. We will discuss strategies for both individual cases and litigation attacking elimination of the PF system:
- What strategies are still available pre-actual-memo-issuance?
- What is the best strategy for ensuring your survivor clients are not deported if/when ICE formally implements evisceration of the PF system?
- How can we, as a field, challenge this most recent attempt to swiftly remove survivors languishing due to CIS failure to timely place them on the waitlist?
