This Article examines the effects of Akbarin v. INS and Miranda v. INS on estoppel as a concept to be applied in immigration proceedings. The author examines the use of estoppel prior to these two cases, and analyzes these cases against the backdrop of the prior case law. The author then examines the potential effects that the Akbarin and Miranda cases will have on estoppel claims. The author suggests that estoppel remains a viable tool against the Immigration and Naturalization Service, and outlines strategic considerations in bringing an estoppel action on behalf of an alien.
