Public Comments due on Administrative Closure Rule

The Department of Justice has issued a notice of proposed rulemkaing that would limit the rights of noncitizens before the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) and immigration court judges. This regulation would eliminate administrative closure for IJs and the BIA, eliminate the BIA and IJs’ sua sponte reopening authority, limit BIA briefing extensions to a maximum of 14 days and require simultaneous briefing by DHS and respondents in all cases, and create a “quality assurance” system through which IJs who don’t like a BIA decision can refer the case directly to EOIR Director McHenry.

Comments are due by September 25, 2020 at regulations.gov.
