Settings requiring interpreters

There are 33 Immigration District Offices in the United States. Each District Office is headed by a District Director. District Offices are where most immigration field staff are located and are responsible for enforcing immigration laws in that jurisdiction. Certain applications are filed directly with District Offices, many kinds of interviews are conducted at these Offices, and immigration staff are available to answer questions, provide forms, etc.

  • District Office: St. Paul
  • Sub Office: none
  • Service Center: Nebraska
  • Asylum Office: Chicago
regional offices
Regional Offices
  • There are three Regional Offices that supervise the work of the immigration Districts. The Regional Directors report to the Executive Associate Commissioner for Field Operations in Washington, DC. The three Regional Offices are located in (Eastern Region) Burlington, VT, (Central Region) Dallas, TX, and (Western Region) Laguna Miguel, CA.

types of immigration hearings
Types of Immigration Hearings
  • Deportation
  • Exclusion
  • Rescission
  • Bond Re-determination
  • When the INS* accuses a person of violating US immigration laws, that person is referred to as an ALIEN. He is a RESPONDENT in a deportation case, an APPLICANT in an exclusion case.
  • *reference to the acronym used in the reading material
  • INS* alleges violation of one of the immigration laws of the US:
    • A respondent entered the country illegally, without inspection by an immigration officer
    • A legal respondent violates a condition of the visa (such as staying past the expiration date)
    • When the INS* believes a respondent is deportable, they issue a document called an Order to Show Cause.
  • A person is stopped at the point of entry because INS* finds the person to be inadmissible (example: entry papers are fraudulent).
  • INS* issues a document called “I-22” and files it with the Office of the Immigration Judge.
  • Hearings are not open to the public.
  • The alien must prove he is admissible to the USA.
  • If the INS* discovers, within 5 years of granting adjustment of status, that a respondent/applicant was not entitled to lawful permanent residence status (LPR), the INS* issues a Notice of Intent to Rescind.
  • As with deportation cases, the government has the burden of proof that rescission is warranted.
bond re determination
Bond Re-determination
  • When the INS* detains a respondent under deportation hearings and that respondent is to be released, the INS* can require posting of a bond that guarantees the respondent’s appearance at the hearing.
  • The respondent has the right to ask an Immigration judge to re-determine the bond, such as raising, lowering, maintaining or eliminating the amount of the bond.
  • It is separate from deportation hearings.
potential relief from deportation
Potential Relief from Deportation
  • Includes simple grants of voluntary departure to complex waivers of deportation.
  • The immigration judge may grant or deny these forms: (text pp. 62-63)
    • Voluntary departure
    • Request for asylum
    • Suspension of deportation
    • Adjustment of status
lpr green card
LPR (“green card”)
  • Lawful Permanent Residency (LPR), or "green cards“, give official immigration status in the United states.
