For those who entered the United States in order to be married, the increasing U.S. emphasis on deportation of illegal immigrants has changed very little; the rules that apply to such cases are as they have been for many years.

A recent decision from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit explains one such obscure point of law — one that is giving a woman slated for removal from the United States a second chance to appeal an Immigration Judge’s adverse decision. See Upatcha v. Sessions, 2017 U.S. App. LEXIS 3135 (4th Cir., 2/22/17).
