New Court Procedures Discussed at Meetings with U.S. Immigration Leaders

New Jersey Immigration Attorney Lloyd E. Bennett attended two meetings with government officials in April that addressed important changes in the immigration court system's procedures. Here is an overview of the meetings from that month and the topics its attendees discussed:

April 12, 2013—Attorney Bennett attended a meeting with leaders from multiple government agencies that enforce U.S. immigration laws and oversee immigration-related court proceedings. The meeting involved national leaders from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR). Those who attended were informed of new national initiatives, which are designed to reduce court and processing delays. The meeting also covered new policies and procedures that are being implemented.

April 23, 2013—Attorney Bennett went to a meeting at USCIS Newark, which was with supervisors of Naturalization, Adjustment, Community Outreach and Staff Counsel. This is a quarterly meeting that is held between the USCIS Newark district office and the New Jersey chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA-NJ) in order to discuss concerns that the organization's members have. These gatherings also allow the supervisors to explain the district office's new policies and procedures, and they allow the organization's representatives to discuss cases of concern that require special attention.
