If you have lost your case in Immigration Court and you believe the decision was made in error, you should file a motion to reopen.

A motion to reopen is a request to the immigration court to review its decision. The motion must be based on factual grounds, such as the discovery of new evidence, or changed circumstances.

Moreover, the motion requires you to provide specific reasons for why officials should reopen your case. Unlike appeals, which ask a higher authority to review and reverse a decision, motions to reopen request a review by the authority that issued the latest decision in the proceeding.
