Excerpts from the Reporter of Decision's syllabus / headnote:

  • A notice to appear sufficient to trigger the IIRIRA’s stop-time rule is a single document containing all the information about an individual’s removal hearing specified in §1229(a)(1). Pp. 4–12.
  • Congress’s decision to use the indefinite article “a” suggests it envisioned “a” single notice provided at a discrete time rather than a series of notices that collectively provide the required information.
  • The IIRIRA’s structure and history support requiring the government to issue a single notice containing all the required information.
  • Other Deportation/Removal
  • Immigration Court
