In a memorandum dated July 31, 2017, Chief Immigration Judge MaryBeth Keller reminds Immigration Judges that in all situations in which a continuance is granted at a hearing, they must make the reason(s) for the adjournment clear on the record by stating the reasons orally or by setting forth in writing the reason(s) in an order. Further, the memo states that “it is critically important that Immigration Judges use continuances appropriately and only where warranted for good cause or by authority established by case law.”

Thus, continuances are harder to obtain now in Immigration Court
