Since April 2022, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Office of the Principal Legal Advisor (OPLA) has dismissed thousands of cases in immigration court, leaving asylum seekers to potentially refile with USCIS. Nonetheless, there has been no guidance from USCIS on how it is approaching legal issues in cases that are filed affirmatively after the court has dismissed the proceedings. Expert panelists will share what they are seeing in their jurisdiction and provide tips on arguments to make before the Asylum Office.

Featured Topics:

  • How are the Asylum Offices viewing I-589s filed after the applicant’s removal proceedings have been dismissed?
  • What about the one-year filing deadline?
  • What happens with the client’s employment authorization document?
  • What if the case already had an affirmative asylum interview?
