Bad News for those of us who represent or try to reopen cases of kids who enter the United States scared and bewildered. Fourte


The Board of Immigration Appeals in a recent decision determined that a child of 14 who probably can't read, write or speak English is old enough to accept and comply with confusing legal documents issued by very friendly border agents. The BIA held that "Personal service of a Notice to Appear (Form I-862) on a minor who is 14 years of age or older at the time of service is effective, and the regulations do not require that notice also be served on an adult with responsibility for the minor."

Motions to Reopen just got harder.
