14-3422 (2d Cir. 2014)

NYLAG filed Bailey v. Lynch in the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit to challenge a decision made by the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration & Customs Enforcement, to reinstate a seventeen-year old order of removal issued without providing Ms. Bailey an opportunity to seek relief. The brief NYLAG filed in this case argued, among other things, that the order of removal could not constitutionally be reinstated unless and until the opportunity to seek relief had been provided to Ms. Bailey. This case was settled and voluntarily withdrawn from the Second Circuit for further proceedings in immigration court.
