The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) recently changed the fingerprint procedure for non-citizens in removal proceedings before an immigration judge. Please click here for more information about this new policy. If you are a pro bono attorney representing an asylum seeker before the immigration court, please review the fingerprint section of NIJC’s asylum manual to determine whether you need to request a fingerprint appointment for your client.
Please note that under this new policy, attorneys can no longer obtain a fingerprint appointment for their clients through an infopass appointment at USCIS. If you are an NIJC pro bono attorney with an asylum client who has a merits hearing in less than three months, and you have not been able to obtain a fingerprint appointment for your client, please email your NIJC point-of-contact immediately.
