Class action child status protection act

  1. 1. Class Action Child Status Protection ActLately, a hearing en banc was made and finally decision during the class action Child Status ProtectionAct (CSPA) case issued by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit against the United StatesCitizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS).In a landmark decision of De Osorio v. Mayorkas, Ninth Circuit apprehended that the Child StatusProtection Act (CSPA) does grant for protection of priority dates, even if the child turns 21 years oldwhile waiting results in a backlog for a visa to become available, taking into consideration the largenumber of applications. This process will shun away the arduous and a very long wait process of filing anew petition for a new priority date to become current.The government has the prerogative and can request an appeal of this decision to the United StatesSupreme Court by filing for a Petition for Writ of Certiorari, which the Supreme Court can recognize ordecline. This “writ of cert” or "Cert Petition” have got to be filed within 90 days (or, on or beforeDecember 26, 2012, or whichever the extensions specified on the filing date). If the USCIS refuses to filean appeal, or if the Supreme Court rejects to accept the case, the decision that was rendered within theNinth Circuit happens to be final. For various aspiring immigrants who may possibly be eligible for a lawful permanent residentcard also commonly known as green card under the decree in the De Osorio might perhaps be doubtfulto file and submit their applications because the wait could be to a certain extent outrageous, beforebeing aware whether or not the USCIS will file an appeal the case to the Supreme Court, or whether theSupreme Court will nullify the decision rendered of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. If a Child StatusProtection Act (CSPA) applicant files an application at the present, the application may in the end bedenied, in the result that the Supreme Court might invalidate the decision of the Ninth Circuit Court ofAppeals. Despite the fact that it may cause some minimal uncertainty or any undesirable outcome, aprospective applicant ought to consider about the advantages and positive aspects of filing at thisinstant, and must reflect on the benefits not in favor of with the probable consequences.Posted at
