Program Description

Noncitizens with removal orders face significant barriers to establishing eligibility for immigration benefits for which they might otherwise be eligible. Assessing what removal-based bars apply and how to overcome the penalties is a complex but necessary part of effective representation of these individuals. Questions on this topic are plentiful over listservs signaling not only the prevalence of this issue, but the confusion that arises. During this webinar, the presenters hope to demystify the removal-based bars and provide a framework of strategies for overcoming those bars. 

The webinar will include a discussion about seeking adjustment of status for Temporary Protected Status recipients who have traveled with government authorization  after receiving a removal order, including the impact on these cases of the CARECEN settlement agreement and USCIS’s rescission of Matter of Z-R-Z-C-.
