Select Motions to Reopen DHS-Issued Removal Orders
NIPNLG has a strong interest in ensuring that noncitizens have an available administrative vehicle to seek cancellation of DHS-issued removal orders, including expedited removal, reinstatement, and administrative removal orders, should they chose to do so. We believe that noncitizens can challenge these orders pursuant to the regulation at 8 C.F.R. Â§ 103.5, which authorizes reopening or reconsideration of immigration decisions, although such filings should not be considered mandatory for purposes of judicial review. In addition to filing motions in select cases, NIPNLG mentors members seeking to file 8 C.F.R. Â§ 103.5 motions.
