Immigration Appeals and Stay of Removal

The Board of Immigration Appeals (“BIA”) is an administrative appellate body that is part of the U.S. Department of Justice. BIA decisions are the final administrative action in a removal proceeding.  However, most BIA decisions can be appealed to a United States Court of Appeals.

The BIA may be affirm the decision of an Immigration Judge.  Alternatively, the Board may either reverse or remand a Judge’s decision.

A “stay” decision issued by the BIA temporarily prevents the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) from executing an order of removal, deportation, or exclusion. A stay may also be issued by the BIA to temporarily prevent release of a respondent on a bond.

Some stays are automatic, while others are discretionary. Automatic stays do not have to be requested. For example, when a respondent appeals an immigration judge’s removal decision, the removal order is automatically stayed while the appeal is pending. Discretionary stays have to be requested. For example, if a respondent is seeking to reopen an immigration judge’s removal order, the stay is not automatic, and the respondent has to ask for one.

The immigration attorneys at Barrows Levy PLLC regularly obtain stays of deporation while our client’s appeals are pending.  If you or a loved one is facing removal from the United States, call us today. We can help!
