On June 8, the Supreme Court announced that it will hear an immigration case on the stop-time rule in its next term. The stop-time rule, which stops the clock on time accrued by the immigrant to become eligible for relief from deportation, is triggered when the government sends the immigrant a “notice to appear” with specific information about the removal proceedings. The specific issue that the Supreme Court will consider is whether all the necessary information must be provided to the immigrant in a single document or if the government can trigger the rule by providing multiple documents. The Supreme Court’s next term starts in October of this year.
