FOIA data reveals BIA policy of accepting untimely briefs DHS
The Board of Immigration Appeals has a policy of accepting untimely briefs from DHS.
However, it does not appear that the BIA also has a policy of accepting untimely briefs from attorneys representing immigrants.
Please let us know if the BIA has rejected untimely briefs for any of your clients. Your information will remain confidential. You can send an e-mail to Messages@amjolaw.com.
(This data shows the DHS fails to write a brief for roughly 60% of the appeals filed with the BIA. In FY 2017, for example, the BIA issued just under 16,000 decisions, and the DHS filed a total of 5,606 appeals.)
