If a permanent resident does find out that the only relief available, although highly unlikely to be granted, since it would take a long time, could the person request that they be removed to their country of birth while the decision is being made or not.
Thank you for allowing me to assist you. If there is a delay in my reply, I am helping others but WILL reply to you asap. Thanks for your patience.
if the person asks to be removed then they are accepting an order of removal and the case is done. once you have left you have abandoned the case and your right to appeal. So you can request to leave but what you are doing is conceding defeat and accepting that you are deported and the case is closed. I hope this clarifies the issue for you.
