In a highly unusual move, EOIR is requiring some immigrants facing deportation to file to stay in the U.S. in a matter of weeks. Normally, immigrants facing deportation have a chance to make their case in court. However, immigration attorneys have noticed many orders requesting that their clients file applications requesting relief from deportation within around five to six weeks. If the deadline is not met, a judge could issue a removal order, meaning they would be subject to deportation at any time. This particularly affects migrant children. Migrants and their attorneys claim to now be “without adequate time” to file for legal relief.
