Since the Trump Administration’s Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) went into effect in 2019, advocates have been encountering more and more children who have been affected by MPP in some way. In this follow up to our March 18 training, we will dive deeper into how to assist children with an MPP removal order, whether on the merits or in absentia. Trina Realmuto will guide us through motions to reopen before the immigration judge and the Board of Immigration Appeals, motions to stay, and arguments for equitable tolling. The training will include a reference to helpful template motions.
Some of the emergency motions and stay materials in the handouts were originally developed in response to anticipated raids, but are applicable (with modifications) to representing individuals who need emergency motions.
Produced for the Vera Unaccompanied Children Network.
