US immigration court refuses to grant residency to Cubans with I-220A

The US Superior Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) rejected the option of considering the I-220A form as a document through which one can access legal immigration residence in the country.

Monday’s ruling is an endorsement of the US Government’s behavior and a defeat for the thousands of Cuban immigrants who have entered the southern border since the end of 2021 and attempts to regularize their status under the Cuban Adjustment Act.

Cubans must pursue their asylum cases through US courts.

However, the legal battle to recognize I220-A may continue in the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals (Alabama, Florida and Georgia) and, ultimately, in the Supreme Court of the United States, according to explained sources consulted by journalist Mario J. Pentón.

In recent months, an increasing number of Cubans who have been released on Form I-220A, also known as “Parole Order,” insist that their entry into the United States be recognized.

Those who have been in the United States for more than a year and a day cannot apply for their residency through the Cuban Adjustment Act because the said law establishes the PAROLE as a requirement, not I-220A.

The US government issued I-220A to some people who were detained and later released by immigration officials.

Last April, a group of Cubans gathered in front of the famous Versailles restaurant in Miami to demand an end to Cuban deportations and ask questions. regularization for those who obtained an I-220A document to enter the United States.

With cries of “No deportation!”, “Freedom for political prisoners!” and “Down with the dictatorship,” Cubans demonstrated peacefully against the continuation of deportations by the Joe Biden administration.
