UPDATE: USCIS Postpones Implementation of New Policy Memoranda on Notices to Appear
As previously reported, on June 28, 2018, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) issued a Policy Memorandum titled “Updated Guidance for the Referral of Cases and Issuance of Notices to Appear (NTAs) in Cases Involving Inadmissible and Deportable Aliens.” USCIS has announced that because it is waiting for operational guidance on the Policy Memo from its internal components, the implementation of the Notice to Appear Policy Memorandum has been postponed until the operational guidance has been issued. The agency did not indicate when that might happen. Our team will continue to monitor and report updates on the status of the Policy Memorandum and its impact on our clients.
