  1. Take a look at the summary of this cases decided by the Board of Immigration Appeals(BIA).

    “Until an alien who is arrested without a warrant is placed in formal proceedings by the filing of a Notice to Appear (Form I-862), the regulation at 8 C.F.R. § 287.3(c) (2011) does not require immigration officers to advise the alien that he or she has a right to counsel and
    that any statements made during interrogation can subsequently be used against the alien.”

    Very important, especially in light of ever-expanding Secure Communities.
