    In recognition of the expertise of family courts, the U.S. Department of Justice promulgated 8 C.F.R. 204.11 providing for "Special Immigration Juvenile Status" or ("SIJ") for UMs.  The federal regulations provide that SIJ petitions must include predicate orders by the family courts finding, among other things, that the UMs have suffered "abuse, neglect, or abandonment," and that return to their home country would not be in their best interests.  This video seeks to provide judges, attorneys, and child professionals who are new to the process with realistic, background information to perform the critical decision-making tasks necessary to decide what is in the best interests of the children.  It also helps to dispel some of the mystery surrounding the work performed by immigration judges.

     

    The video depicts a conversational presentation by immigration experts followed by two mock hearings illustrating a case involving a typical SIJ petition.  It not only depicts an interesting factual scenario but also discusses novel legal arguments judges can be expected to encounter in court.  Valuable resource materials are also included at the end of the video.  For further information, contact the ABA Judicial Division's National Conference of the Administrative Law Judiciary or Judge Alex Manuel at alexmanuel2002@gmail.com
