EOIR Directed To Prioritize Removal Of Detainees And Unaccompanied Minors Without Sponsors

On January 31, 2017, the Trump administration released a memorandum-effective immediately-which orders the Department of Justice Executive Office for Immigration Review to prioritize deportation hearings for the following: (1) All detained individuals; (2) Unaccompanied children in the care and custody of Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Refugee Resettlement who do not have a sponsor identified; and (3) individuals released on a Rodriguez bond.

Previous Priorities

The cases that are no longer the highest docketing and processing priority are the following: (1) All other unaccompanied children; (2) Adults with children who are released on alternatives to detention; and (3) Adults with children that may have been initially detained but are subsequently released from custody. See AILA Doc. No. 17020136
