Ninth Circuit Provides Hope to Young Immigrants

Great news out of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, which ruled today that a Board of Immigration Appeals interpretation of the Child Status Protection Act (CSPA), improperly excluded a large class of immigrants from being eligible for immediate residence.  Rosalina Cuellar de Osorio challeged the BIA’s interpretation of the CSPA in Matter of Wang before the 9th Circuit.  She initially lost before a three judge panel, but the court sitting en banc agreed to rehear the case.
