But according to USCIS.gov website "Question and Answer Aug. 2006" Document "DHS Procedures for Implementation of EOIR Background Check Regulations for Aliens Seeking Relief or Protection From Removal" a question was: "I have an application pending with immigration court or the BIA for relief or protection. Where should I file a form I-765 for an Employment Authorization Document (EAD) while I am in removal proceeding?"
The answer was: You should continue to file the form I-765 including any applicable fees at the address listed n the accompanying form instructions. It is also helpful to the application adjudicator for you to indicate whether you have a current case in immigration court or with the BIA.
And according to I-765 instructions it seems that it would fall under category c(10) "Applicant for Suspension of Deportation" and would require for it to be mailed to the USCIS office in Chicago.
Is this not correct? Am I misunderstanding this?
Further on law blog on Lawyers.com "David C. Heier Immigration Law Blog on Lawyers.com Cancellation of Removal for Non-Permenant Residents."
"If the applicant has been released from detention, filing such a relief application can be very valuable. While the application is pending before the Immigration Court, the applicant can receive temporary employment authorization. With the employment authorization card in hand, the applicant can apply for and receive his or her own social security card. After receiving the social security card, the applicant can apply for and recieve a driver license."
Is this misinformation? I just want to understand. Thank you for your help.
