EOIR Cancels PM 20-01 (Case Processing)

EOIR, Mar. 17, 2021

"As part of EOIR’s ongoing efforts to improve operations and review existing policy memoranda, the following Policy Memorandum (PM) is rescinded: 1. PM 20-01, Case Processing at the Board of Immigration Appeals PM 20-01 was issued in relation to the publication of the final rule titled “Appellate Procedures and Decisional Finality in Immigration Proceedings,” 85 Fed. Reg. 81588 (Dec. 16, 2020), which has been enjoined until further court order and is no longer in effect. See Centro Legal de la Raza, et al., v. EOIR, et al., No. 3:21-cv-00463-SI (N.D. Cal.). The revocation of PM 20-01 is consistent with that court order and with Executive Orders 14010 and 14012 (Feb. 2, 2021). Upon this rescission, the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) returns to the case management system established by regulation that was effective on September 25, 2002, to manage the Board’s caseload."
