"Preserving Judicial Review of Equitable Tolling Arguments in Motions to Reopen." Read More


This practice advisory was developed to assist attorneys with their cases on petition for review before a federal court of appeals. Specifically, the focus of the advisory is preserving jurisdiction before the court despite the criminal alien bar of INA section 242(a)(2)(C). Normally, criminal aliens can only seek review of constitutional and legal questions under section 242(a)(2)(D), so the Office of Immigration Litigation (OIL) has been arguing that questions of diligence for purposes of equitable tolling are questions of fact in order to trigger the criminal alien bar. This advisory lays out arguments to preserve review of these issues as mixed questions of law and fact in order to preserve a client's argument for equitable under either Avila-Santoyo v. U.S. Att'y Gen., 713 F.3d 1357 (11th Cir. 2013) (en banc), and Lugo-Resendez v. Lynch, 831 F.3d 337 (5th Cir. 2016).
