Full Prosecutorial Discretion Returns Under Biden
Full Prosecutorial Discretion is Back!
Well, it is not necessarily “full” prosecutorial discretion, and each attorney working for DHS has guidelines to follow and supervisors to please. However, it appears that this era of prosecutorial discretion will be as good as, if not better than, what we saw under the second Obama term. Many immigrants will be spared from removal. Even clients with criminal history may be granted prosecutorial discretion, so long as they do not pose a risk to national security or public safety.
