CA3 on Pereira, Stop-Time: Guadalupe v. Barr

February 26, 2020 (1 min read)

Guadalupe v. Barr

"In Pereira v. Sessions, the Supreme Court held that a Notice to Appear (NTA) that omits the time and date of appearance does not stop a noncitizen’s continuous residency period. The issue before us is whether Pereira abrogated our decision in Orozco-Velasquez v. Attorney General, where we held that an NTA that omits the time and date may be “cured” with a later Notice of Hearing that provides the missing information. We now hold that Pereira does abrogate Orozco-Velasquez. It is our conclusion that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) may no longer rely on a Notice of Hearing to cure a defective NTA."
