Cases On Hold Pending BIA Review of Retroactive Adoption Rules

"The 9th Circuit demanded a status report Thursday as immigration authorities reconsider their blanket rule against recognizing retroactive adoption orders. ... In petitioning for a panel rehearing, Holder noted that "the board has recently called for supplemental briefing in two cases presenting the issue of whether the rule in Matter of Cariaga should be overruled or modified."  This led the court to withdraw its March ruling on Thursday [Amponsah v. Holder] and demand a status report from the attorney general." - CNS, Sept. 12, 2013.
