Significant Questions About NSEERS Raised by Malea Kiblan, Esq.

We would appreciate as many responses to the following questions as possible from all over the country so that these findings can be conveyed to CIS and ICE Headquarters:

When someone is required to late register for NSEERS, how is that process handled by ICE in your jurisdiction?

Are you allowed as an attorney to be present with your client during the interview? Are you allowed to provide evidence?

Does ICE make any specific findings of fact?

Do they accept testimony that the applicant simply was not aware of the program or his obligation to register?

Do they make consistent “willful” findings? How does CIS respond to a willful finding – do they deny Ajustment of Status?
