The current political climate is now mandating that USCIS issue NTAs (Notice to Appear) for cases where benefits have been denied. A NTA is a document directing a person to attend a removal court hearing, when cases are denied. In the past, USCIS was a bit more lenient for those who received denied cases through USCIS. Therefore caution should be exercised when filing Applications, as an error can cause a denial which results in the issuance of a NTA. Handling a hearing in front of a judge can be very time consuming and costly for an immigrant and their families.
