Removal Defense Section Call: T Visas and Removal Proceedings

Did you know your client may have another humanitarian option that is not asylum or SIJ? Join AILA’s Removal Defense Section for a discussion of how to identify a T-visa fact pattern to assist clients in removal proceedings whose options may be limited. They will discuss how a T visa can stop removal proceedings and removal plans, waive unwaivable inadmissibility grounds, and be the solution in complex removal cases. Speakers will also discuss the broad definition of trafficking and identify the types of evidence that are required to support a T visa.

  • The definition of trafficking
    • Which fact patterns can qualify your client for a T visa?
    • What evidence is necessary for a T visa?
  • How to apply for a T visa if your client is in proceedings
    • What if your client has a final order of removal?
    • Can a T visa stop a removal plan if ICE has one?
  • Who can be a derivative on a T-visa application?
  • What can a T visa waive?
