A district court judge issued a nationwide stay of the effective date of the December 18, 2020, EOIR final fee rule and a preliminary injunction to enjoin most of its implementation. The rule was set to go into effect today, January 19, 2021. Accordingly, fees will stay the same for BIA appeals from IJ decision (EOIR-26), BIA appeals from decision of DHS officer (EOIR-29), BIA motions to reopen, applications for LPR cancellation (EOIR-42A), applications for non-LPR cancellation (EOIR-42B), and applications for suspension of deportation (EOIR-40). The court did not enjoin the fee for immigration court motions to reopen, attorney disciplinary appeals, or the $50 asylum fee, the latter of which is currently enjoined nationwide by two other courts.
