Submitting a Prosecutorial Discretion Request

How Do You Submit a PD Request?

Prior to making a PD request would be for OPLA attorneys to analyze and determine whether the case qualifies for the exercise of PD to begin with. For noncitizens, the initial step would be to make an affirmative request to OPLA seeking to receive a commendatory request of prosecutorial discretion. OPLA and ICE Office of Partnership and Engagement work together to hold virtual meetings around the country for noncitizens to learn more about the PD process. This allows for noncitizens to truly understand he process along and answer any questions they may have regarding the procedural aspects of PD. There are various field locations to submit requests to all around the United States, and each listed location includes details that should be included in all PD submissions. These details include:

  • Type of PD (Bond reduction, continuance, joint motion to dismiss, etc.)
  • Reason of warranted PD
  • Supporting evidence and documentation for OPLA attorney to evaluate with any and all criminal history

If the PD request is agreed upon and approved by the main Chief Counsel, the appropriate field location may provide the requestor with a motion to sign for filing and the process will then begin.

OPLA attorneys do not require specific formats for PD request in cases of unrepresented citizens. In these cases, private immigration bar is welcomed to assist unrepresented noncitizens in submitting PD requests.
