"Section 7611 of the recently-enacted National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2020 (NDAA), Pub. L. 116-92, established a new eligibility program for adjustment of status for certain Liberian nationals and their spouses, children, and unmarried sons and daughters. The NDAA did not prescribe a role for either the immigration courts or the Board of Immigration Appeals (the Board) in adjudicating applications under the new program; rather, authority over the new program is committed to the Secretary of Homeland Security (the Secretary). NDAA ยง 7611(a)-(i). Nevertheless, ancillary issues regarding the NDAA may arise in immigration proceedings, and the instant PM is intended to provide guidance for addressing those issues."
