On November 6, 2019, the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA or Board) issued an amicus invitation welcoming parties to brief whether the U.S. Supreme Court’s opinion in Esquirel-Quintana v. Sessions, 137 S.Ct. 1562 (2017) affects the meaning of the term “crime of child abuse” under INA §237(a)(2)(i) as applied to “statutory rape” convictions. If so, why and how; if not, why not? Members of the public must first submit a Request to Appear as Amicus Curaie, identifying that they are responding to Amicus Invitation No. 19-11-6. Requests to appear and briefs needed to be filed by December 6, 2019.
