Updated Notice to Appear (NTA) Policy Guidance

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) invites you to participate in a teleconference on Thursday, Nov. 15, 2018, from 2 to 3 p.m. (Eastern), to discuss the Policy Memorandum entitled “Updated Guidance for the Referral of Cases and Issuance of Notices to Appear (NTAs) in Cases Involving Inadmissible and Deportable Aliens (PDF, 140 KB),” issued by USCIS on June 28, 2018. This is the second in a series of stakeholder engagements on the NTA Policy Memorandum.

During the teleconference, USCIS officials will provide an overview of the memorandum and an update on the continued expansion of the implementation process. Beginning Nov. 19, USCIS will apply the memorandum to the following denied applications and petitions:
