Proposed Projects: Updating the Immigration Judge with information about the unaccompanied minor's case and reunification with a sponsor.

Title: Unaccompanied Children Case Summary Form.

OMB No.: New.

Description: Following the passage of the 2002 Homeland Security Act (Pub. L. 107-296), the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), is charged with the care and placement of unaccompanied children in Federal custody. Unaccompanied children attend immigration court hearings while in ORR care if the length of stay is more than sixty days. The form in question was created with input from immigration judges at the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR).

The proposed information collection requests information to be utilized by EOIR for determining the best course of action to take in the UC's case in immigration court. The proposed instrument is the Unaccompanied Children Case Summary Form.

Respondents: Case Managers who are employees of social service agencies receiving grants from ORR to vet potential sponsors and to help advance the UC's case by providing updates to the Immigration Judge hearing the UC's case requesting legal relief from deportation.
