According to New England AILA, Homeland Security is no longer working with AILA’s liaison to help faciliate requests for Deferred Action. Clients should work directly with their attorneys, without AILA assistance, to request Deferred Action at the local Homeland Security offices.
AILA recently informed attorneys: “UPDATE FROM OUR HSI LIAISON REGARDING REQUESTS FOR DEFERRED ACTION: Unfortunately, the Special Agent in Charge of Homeland Security Investigations has been reassigned to Washington, DC. Therefore, for the foreseeable future, HSI will no longer entertain requests for Deferred Action and/or Surrender Cases (to be placed in proceedings). When or if this policy changes, we will notify the membership.”
