YES! There are many reasons why you can obtain a Stay of Removal to prevent you from being physically removed from the United States.
When you lose your deportation case, you have the chance to appeal the Immigration Judge's decision to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). The deadline to file your Notice to Appeal is 30 days from the day the Judge's decision. The BIA will review your case and decide to either affirm the Immigration Judge's decision or grant your appeal. The moment you file your appeal, you have an automatic a Stay of your deportation. Meaning, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will not physically remove you from the United States while your appeal is pending.
If you lose at the BIA, you can still appeal their decision to the U.S. U.S. Circuit Court that belongs to your jurisdiction. The filing of an appeal to the U.S. Circuit Court also comes with a Stay of your deportation.
I lost my case at both the BIA and the Circuit Court, is there anything I can do to stop my deportation?
However, if the Circuit Court still denies your case, you may think all is lost. Not necessarily. We have been successful in obtaining a Stay of Deportation, even after the Circuit Court denies our appeal.
To obtain Stay of Removal from ICE, we have to convince ICE not to deport. Either because you have significant ties to the community, family members who are either US Citizens or Legal Residents, and that there is a strong likelihood that you will qualify for some immigration benefit or relief.
