CLINIC welcomes Jill Marie Bussey as Advocacy Attorney. Her efforts will engage CLINIC affiliates, other advocates, and government agencies to guide the implementation of President Obama’s executive orders on immigration. Jill focuses on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA), enforcement priorities, and other topics.
How have you been involved in immigration advocacy?
On Tuesday, May 26, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals denied the government’s request for an emergency stay of the injunction issued by a Brownsville judge in February. That injunction stopped implementation of the expanded DACA and the DAPA programs that were already set to begin. The district court found that the plaintiffs – 26 states – had standing to bring the lawsuit and it found that the government had violated the Administrative Procedures Act (APA) in failing to publish regulations before implementing the programs.
Case management forms are essential in immigration practice. Below is a list of commonly used forms by practitioners. This is not an exhaustive list, but a list to help you think what forms you need for your immigration program. Each form contains a sample primarily to educate you about the forms’ purpose and content. We encourage you to review the sample forms as educational pieces and to create your own forms that best suit your program.
