The panelists will take a look at the concept of "arriving alien," and discuss who the category covers and does not cover. Learn how to determine which agency maintains jurisdiction over adjustment of status for arriving aliens in removal proceedings and with outstanding removal orders. Panelists also will provide an update on the ever-shifting landscape of adjustment of status for TPS holders who travel abroad with advance parole under INA §244(f)(3).

Featured Topics

  • Determining Who Is and Who Is Not an "Arriving Alien"
  • Strategies for Arriving Aliens in Removal Proceedings: Bond Eligibility, Deficient NTAs, and Outstanding Removal Orders
  • Jurisdiction Over Adjustment of Status of "Arriving Aliens"
  • Understanding Parole: Advance Parole, Conditional Parole, and More
  • Unique Challenges for TPS Holders Who Travel with Advance Parole Issued Pursuant to INA §244(f)(3)
