Revised General Practice Regarding First Briefing Deadline Extension Request for Detained Aliens
This notice updates an earlier advisal of a revised general practice to be followed by the Board of Immigration Appeals regarding briefing deadlines for cases before the Board in which the alien is detained. The former notice stated that the additional time period granted for a first briefing extension will generally be reduced from 21 days to 15 days, and the number of extension requests granted will generally be reduced from one per party to one per case. After further consideration, the 21 day briefing schedule will be retained. The number of extension requests granted per case, however, will still be generally reduced to one.
