When does Immigration use Prosecutorial Discretion?

///When does Immigration use Prosecutorial Discretion?

Prosecutorial discretion can be used at any stage of an immigration case. For example, whether to: issue a detainer; initiate removal proceedings; focus enforcement resources on particular violations or conduct; stop, question, or arrest a particular person; detain or release someone on bond, supervision, or personal recognizance; settle or dismiss a removal case; stay a final order of removal; pursue an appeal; and/or execute a removal order.  Examples of the favorable exercise of prosecutorial discretion include a grant of deferred action; a decision to terminate or administratively close removal proceedings; a stay of removal; or a decision not to issue a charging document in the first place.
