If you had your immigration trial go against you and an immigration judge issued an order of removal, you can still fight for your future in the United States by appealing the judge’s decision in a higher court – the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). This gives you another chance to submit new critical facts and evidence for review and evaluation by the Immigration Court.
It is important to note that a Motion to Reopen must be filed within 90 days of the original judge’s decision. Once an appeal is filed with BIA, you will be allowed to remain in the United States.
Some of the most common immigration appeals cases include:
- Removal/deportation judgement against an immigrant;
- Denial of asylum or cancellation of removal;
- Denial of U.S. permanent residence or citizenship application.
