Eighth Circuit Upholds Denial of Adjustment of StatusDecember 16, 2013
California Supreme Court Holds that Undocumented Immigrants may Join State BarJanuary 2, 2014
In upholding the decisions, the Ninth Circuit ruled that the immigration judge did not abuse his discretion since he is entitled to set deadlines under 8 C.F.R. § 1003.31. The court ruled that since she did not file within the deadline, she waived her applications and her removal order was proper.
This is a very good decision that should be applied in our circuit. I have had several cases where the government did not meet the immigration judge‘s deadlines and was still able to admit evidence and arguments. I look forward to arguing this case before our immigration judges.
