Immigration issues: DMV and Prosecutorial Discretion and Administrative Closure

You will  listed below  find the most recent list of acceptable documents from the Florida DMV or  you may click  here:  acceptabledocuments_Florida   for a government list.   As you can see, there are two additions.  Below is the text from the list.  It can be found on pages 3-4 of the attachment.

Prosecutorial Discretion:

Under a new initiative from the DHS, ICE agents, their attorneys and the Director/Deputy Director of DHS are allowed to use their discretion to close cases and allow applicants currently in removal proceedings to remain in the country lawfully. This is a two-step process: The applicant’s attorney and the prosecutors in ICE, etc., jointly file a motion to terminate the removal proceedings case. Then the motion is heard by a IJO and a Final Order is issued. The Final Order may be approved, granted, or denied.

In all such cases, we can issue the license/ID for one year upon receiving the following documents:

• Copy of Joint motion for termination

• Original of the Final order “granting” or “approving” the motion.

• If the motion is denied, we will not process for issuance.

Administrative Closures:

Administrative closures or termination of a removal proceedings case implies that the case has not been proven by DHS to warrant removal and deportation and the applicant can remain lawfully in the country. When a case is administratively terminated, we can issue the license/ID upon receiving the order terminating the case. Documents required will be:

• Notice To Appear for the removal proceedings and the

• IJO Order terminating the case
