Supreme Court Amicus Brief Filed

NILA, in collaboration with Perkins Coie and the National Immigrant Justice Center, filed an amicus brief with the Supreme Court in Patel v. Garland. In our brief, we explain how, if the Immigration and Nationality Act’s restriction on federal court review of certain discretionary decisions is read as stripping federal courts of jurisdiction over nondiscretionary, statutory eligibility issues, noncitizen applicants for adjustment of status who are not in removal proceedings—and thus can seek review only in U.S. district courts—will be left without a forum for review of all errors of law or fact by USCIS, no matter how egregious.  Read the brief here.
