There are two Cubans who entered the United States but cannot adjust their immigration status because they were released with Form I-220-A.
The federal government did not reveal the exact number of migrants released at the border with this document, but members of organized chats on social networks realize that there are thousands.
In South Florida, attorney Eduardo Soto filed the final appeal in the matter. It joins several already existing ones that call on the “Immigration Appeal Board”, the body responsible for “interpreting and enforcing immigration laws” – to define whether it is appropriate or not to recognize the document as conditional release.
The accumulation of cases dates back to 2017, after the elimination of dry feet, wet feet. A previous court ruling had recognized I-220-A as legal entry into the country or parole, but only between January 2017 and January 2021.
