DHS/USCIS RIN: 1615-AB98 Publication ID: Fall 2019 
Title: Requirements for Filing Motions and Administrative Appeals  

This rule proposes to revise the requirements and procedures for the filing of motions and appeals before the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), and its Administrative Appeals Office (AAO). The proposed changes are intended to streamline the existing processes for filing motions and appeals and are intended to reduce delays in the review and appellate process. This rule will also propose additional changes necessitated by the establishment of DHS and its components. The proposed changes are intended to promote simplicity, accessibility, and efficiency in the administration of USCIS appeals and motions. The Department will also solicit public comment on proposed changes to the AAO’s appellate jurisdiction.
