Given the Ninth Circuit has agreed to re-hear the Child Status Protection Act issue, I’m looking for actual cases of where children have aged out of a petition filed by their grandparents (F-3) or uncles/aunts (F-4), and the parents immigrated or adjusted their status to that of legal permanent residents. The adult unmarried son/daughter either got left behind in their country of origin or could not adjust status with their parents and has to wait in a long line again.
The best kind of cases would be ones where the legal immigrant parents subsequently filed a new petition on behalf of the aged-out unmarried adult son/daughter, attempting to retain the original priority date and USCIS refused, placing the adult unmarried son/daughter in deportation proceedings. But it doesn’t have to be limited to that fact-pattern. If you have a case where the parents got their green cards through their parents or siblings but their own children got left out of the process because they were over 21, please shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP.
This request is for an amicus curiae brief to be filed with the Ninth Circuit. Your name can be redacted or providing an alias is alright.
If you need more information about the Child Status Protection Act (CSPA) or need clarification of the request, feel free to shoot me an email as well so I can clarify.
