Noncitizens in Deportation or Removal Proceedings

Proceedings in Immigration Court (the Executive Office for Immigration Review)

Whether an immigrant has been arrested by immigration authorities within the U.S., submitted an application to USCIS that was rejected, or successfully requested an asylum hearing upon entry to the U.S., his or her rights and claim for relief will be decided upon by an Immigration Judge, within the Executive Office of Immigration Review (EOIR).
