The BIA has issued two recent unpublished decisions shedding some further light on how the agency interprets eligibility for the unlawful presence and the prior deportation waiver.  Both involve the effect of the person’s presence in the United States and whether that time can count toward the running of the three-year bar (unlawful presence) and the ten-year bar (prior order of removal).  We stress that these two decisions are unpublished and thus cannot be used as precedent in other cases.

If you practice within the jurisdiction of the Ninth Circuit – Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon and Washington – a recent class action settlement concerning 245(i) adjustment applicants may affect your clients.  Under the settlement, certain applicants for adjustment of status under 245(i) who filed I-212 waiver applications to overcome inadmissibility under 212(a)(9)(C)(i)(II) will be eligible to proceed with their applications.
