Administratively Closed Cases and EADs

Law-Related Reflections

DHS has stated that those people whose cases have been administratively closed may be eligible to apply for an employment authorization document (EAD) pursuant to recent announcements on recommended treatment of low priority deportation cases. However, the legal basis for the EAD, specifically, what factors might be used to grant or deny an EAD application under this policy and the validity period of the EAD have not been explained.

As such, no one should turn himself or herself in to immigration authorities hoping to get an EAD, assuming that he or she has a low priority case that will end up being administratively closed. As the DHS FAQ explains, such action carries a high risk that the individual will be placed in removal proceedings and instead of having his or her case administratively closed or terminated, he or she may be ordered removed.
