Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 169 / Thursday, August 31, 2006 / Notices 2006). The commentary in that notice is incorporated herein by reference. In that notice, the Board stated that in cases involving detained aliens, it would henceforth normally grant only one extension request per case, as opposed to one extension request per party. It also reduced the amount of time generally granted for any briefing extension from 21 days to 15 days. The Board received comments from a large number of entities claiming that the reduction in the amount of time for briefing extensions would have a negative effect on detained aliens with respect to securing representation. In particular, the commenters argued that this would have an adverse impact on the Board’s Pro Bono Project. The Board has reconsidered its policy change as to the amount of time granted for briefing extensions. The Board will continue to grant 21 day briefing extensions. As advised in the prior Federal Register notice, however, the Board will change its practice regarding the number of briefing extensions granted, and will generally grant only one briefing extension per case when the alien is detained. Dated: August 22, 2006. Lori Scialabba, Chairman, Board of Immigration Appeals.
