Denial of B2 Extension could result in deportation

A June 28, 2018, USCIS policy memorandum (PM 602-0050.1) expands the conditions under which USCIS will issue a Notice to Appear (NTA), the document that initiates removal (deportation) proceedings, to now include situations "where, upon issuance of an unfavorable decision on an application, petition, or benefit request, the alien is not lawfully present in the United States."

Under the new policy, USCIS can issue an NTA after denying an application for an immigration benefit only if on the date of the denial the applicant is out of status.

For examples, denial of an extension of stay or change of status request, where the applicant's prior status expires before USCIS denies the EOS or COS.
