    AILA members regularly report that DHS is refusing to renew "orders of supervision" (OSUP) grants and stays of removal, even in cases where the person has been in the country decades and reporting to ICE. ICE is also detaining people at scheduled check-ins and deporting them quickly thereafter. [ID #309]

Prior Policies

  • Federal regulations authorize ICE to grant a discretionary “stay of removal” delaying an individual’s deportation. ICE can also place people on orders of supervision (OSUP), which require them to regularly check-in with ICE. Individuals with stays of removal or orders of supervision are allowed to remain in the country—sometimes indefinitely—and are often granted work authorization. In granting stays of removal or orders of supervision, ICE typically considered whether the person had particularly compelling humanitarian equities.
