    The EOIR Director issues Policy Memo 21-04 to rescind ten Operating Policies and Procedures Memoranda (OPPMs) deemed outdated or unnecessary:

    • OPPM 98-8 – Cancellation of Outdated Operating Policies and Procedures
    • OPPM 98-7 – Management of Institutional Hearing Program
    • OPPM 98-3 – Regulations Implementing Motions to Reopen for Suspension of Deportation/Cancellation of Removal under NACARA and other NACARA Cases
    • OPPM 96-5 – Creation of Immigration Judge Advisory Committees
    • OPPM 95-2 – Earliest Possible Release Dates on Institutional Hearing Program Cases
    • OPPM 94-10 – Wearing of the Robe During Immigration Judge Hearings
    • OPPM 93-4 – Cancellation of Outdated OPPM
    • OPPM 90-4 – Handling Charging Document in Administratively Closed Cases
    • OPPM 88-3 – Filing of Charging Documents in Cases Previously Administratively Closed
