Prosecutorial Discretion (PD) is the longstanding authority of an agency charged with enforcing the law to decide where to focus its resources and whether or how to enforce, or not to enforce, the law against an individual. As the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) representative before the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) in exclusion, deportation, and removal proceedings, OPLA relies upon PD and other factors to guide its decision making.
The Biden Administration is relying on this process to reduce cases with the immigration court. This process will finalize your immigration proceedings. If you are in court and would like to know if you can obtain PD, please contact us.
