Supreme Court heard arguments today on an issue that will impact “aged-out” children.

Today the Supreme Court (SCOTUS) heard arguments in the case Mayorkas v. De Osorio which addresses the question of whether children who are derivative beneficiaries of preference category family petitions can automatically convert  their petitions to a different petitioner and retain the same priority date.  The transcript of the argument can be found here. It’s dense reading but […]
