Using T visa and VAWA adjustment denials, this panel will focus on strategies to avoid the issuance of a Notice to Appear by USCIS, including the filing of motions and appeals before USCIS and requesting assistance from liaisons.

Detention and Administrative Stays of Removal  (1.50 hours)

In this session, we will discuss when and how to file a request for stay of removal with ICE in light of DHS’s attempts to dismantle the prima facie system.
