A foreign national may appeal the decision of DHS or an immigration judge to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). These decisions, in turn, can then be appealed to the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals.
If the petitioner receives an unfavorable decision from the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, they may in some circumstances appeal to the United States Supreme Court, the highest judicial authority in the country, through a Petition for Writ of Certiorari.
This petition must be very persuasive, arguing not only for the desired decision, but also for why the court should even hear the case.
The Supreme Court may grant or deny any Petition for Writ of Certiorari at their discretion.
