this is a good opportunity to seek justice at last, one problem remains.
The deportation branch of ICE could move fast to deport the individual,
and there is no automatic stay that allows you to remain in the country

and we can help.
Types of Immigration Appeals
Board of Immigration Appeals
The Board of Immigration Appeals, or BIA, is made up of 15 members. This
Board has the responsibility to ensure that immigration law is applied
correctly and uniformly throughout the country. They have the jurisdiction
to review decisions by immigration judges throughout the country.
Administrative Appeals Office
The Administrative Appeals Office, or AAO, adjudicates appeals such as
denied petitions and applications. The Office has been given the duty
to resolve immigration issues in a timely, efficient manner. If you have
an unfair decision by the USCIS regarding a petition or application for
immigrant benefits, your appeal will be heard by this office.
Board of Alien Labor Certification Appeals
Appeals regarding permanent labor certifications, temporary labor certifications,
specialty workers, temporary foreign workers, agricultural workers and
season, peak load or intermittent workers, as well as longshore work at
U.S. ports, are addressed through the Board of Alien Labor Certification
Appeals, under the authority of the United States Department of Labor.
Federal Review of Immigration Appeals
If your immigration legal matter is not resolved through the various levels
of immigration hearings, you could ask for a federal review of a BIA decision.
Petitions to review BIA decisions must be filed within a strict 30 days
from the time of the decision. If deportation is imminent, filing a petition
should take place immediately.
