"Given the difficulties in obtaining relief under the Immigration and Nationality Act for many clients, it is important to consider the alternatives of private legislation, pardons, and prosecutorial discretion. These alternatives are not easy to pursue but must be considered in representing clients for whom little relief is available."

-Anna Gallagher


Through the years, thousands of noncitizens with compelling stories have been deported or excluded because their cases did not fall within the four corners of existing immigration laws. When existing immigration laws fail to provide the necessary relief to noncitizens, their only options may be to apply for a private bill or a pardon. AILA's Focus on Private Bills & Pardons in Immigration can help.
