Sample I.C.E. Notice to Removed Aliens Who May Be Seeking Judicial Review

Below is a sample I.C.E. notice regarding I.C.E. policy memo 11061.1, “Facilitating the Return to the United States of Certain Lawfully Removed Aliens,”:


U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement


Alien’s Name: ______________

A#(s): ______________

You have received an administratively final order of removal from an immigration judge, the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) or the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Generally, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is authorized to
execute your administratively final removal order, even if you have filed a petition for review (PFR) with a U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals challenging that order. In the event the court grants your PFR, ICE may decide to facilitate your return to the  United States following removal. It is your responsibility to follow any court rules about providing updated address and contact information while your PFR is pending.

Absent extraordinary circumstances, if you are removed while a PFR is pending, ICE
will facilitate your return to the United States under the following circumstances:

(1) If your case is remanded by the court for further administrative consideration and your presence has been ordered by the court or deemed necessary by ICE to resolve your administrative removal proceedings; or

(2) If the court’s order has restored you to lawful permanent resident or other status permitting you to be physically present in the United States.

If a decision is made to facilitate your return, the steps ICE will take in your case will depend on whether you will be returning to the United States by air or sea vessel, or by land from Mexico or Canada. ICE will not ordinarily make your travel arrangements or fund the cost of your return travel. If ICE facilitates your return to the United States because a court grants your PFR, you will revert to the immigration status you held, if any,
just prior to the administrative final removal order that the federal court has reversed or vacated. Please note that ICE may detain you upon your return, depending on the circumstances of your case.

Contact Information: If, based on this notice, you believe that ICE should facilitate your return to the United States, please have available your circuit court case number, alien registration number(s) listed above, and a reliable way for ICE to get in touch with you, and contact:
