Why You Should Attend
In 2015 alone, there were 333,341 documented removals, or deportations, from the United States. Not only is the large number of removals concerning, it is particularly alarming that so many removals could have been successfully challenged, but so many of the deportees were never advised regarding any such options. Many individuals facing removal do not obtain legal assistance, and unwittingly forfeit critical rights and legal protections. This training will provide you with the tools that you need to assess the options of individuals facing imminent deportations due to administrative or reinstatement orders, orders issued by the Immigration Courts, and the role of habeas and other legal actions in the context of imminent removal.

What You Will Learn
  • When can I file an Emergency Petition for Review in the context of Administrative and Reinstatement Orders?
  • What type of Emergency Motions to Reopen might be possible?
  • Is a Habeas Petition or another Federal Court action a viable option?
  • Who Should Attend
    This training is designed for immigration attorneys who want to learn how imminent removals might be halted with legal challenges.  Participants should have a basic knowledge of immigration law, but need not have prior experience with challenging orders of removal.
