The First Circuit recently recognized the right of individuals to file a
motion to reopen a deportation order, even after deportation.
This timely CLE will include an introduction to the area of post-deportation
immigration law and how it has evolved in recent years. The program will
provide information on applying for immigrant and nonimmigrant visas after
removal, along with the most common grounds of inadmissibility and accompanying
waivers of inadmissibility, with a particular focus on obstacles faced by those
who have been previously removed. The program will also cover
"post-departure" motions to reopen, including a survey of circuit law on the
issue, a discussion of recent relevant First Circuit decisions, and suggested
strategies for filing post-departure motions to reopen before Immigration Judges
and the Board of Immigration Appeals. Lastly, the presentation will include
information on how to bring a client who succeeds on a motion to reopen or a
petition for review after deportation back into the United States.
