Title 8 published on 2015-01-01
The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 8 CFR Part 1003 after this date.
The Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) has published in the Federal Register a proposed rule amending the regulations governing the requirements and procedures for authorizing representatives of non-profit religious, charitable, social service, or similar organizations to represent persons in proceedings before EOIR and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The proposed rule also proposes amendments to the regulations concerning EOIR's disciplinary procedures. EOIR seeks public comment on issues affecting this proposed rule and will host three open public meetings to discuss it. The first meeting will be limited to a discussion of the recognition of organizations; the second meeting will address accreditation of representatives; and the third meeting will address oversight of recognized organizations and accredited representatives.
This final rule adopts, without change, the proposed rule “Separate Representation for Custody and Bond Proceedings” as published in the Federal Register on September 17, 2014. Specifically, this final rule amends the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) regulations relating to the representation of an individual in custody and bond proceedings before EOIR by allowing a representative before EOIR to enter an appearance in custody and bond proceedings without such appearance constituting an entry of appearance for all of the individual's proceedings before the Immigration Court.
This final rule adopts, as amended, the proposed rule entitled “List of Pro Bono Legal Service Providers for Aliens in Immigration Proceedings.” The final rule changes the name of the “List of Free Legal Service Providers,” maintained by the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), to the “List of Pro Bono Legal Service Providers” (List). It enhances the eligibility requirements for providers to be included on the List. It authorizes the Director of EOIR, or his or her designee, to place providers on the List and remove them from the List. The rule also allows the public to comment on eligible applicants and requires approved providers to certify their eligibility every 3 years.
This rule proposes to amend the regulations governing the requirements and procedures for authorizing representatives of non-profit religious, charitable, social service, or similar organizations to represent persons in proceedings before the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The rule also proposes amendments to the regulations concerning EOIR's disciplinary procedures.
This rule amends the Department of Justice regulations relating to the organization of the Board of Immigration Appeals (Board) by adding two Board member positions, thereby expanding the Board to 17 members.
