Asked 7 months ago - Brownsville, TX

I have a question regarding filling out I-821-D

Question #3.b Status or outcome

Can someone please describe the difference between

1. Currently in Proceedings (Active)
2. Currently in Proceedings (Administratively Closed)
3. Terminated
4. Subject to Final Order

This is in regards to question #3.a being answered as Yes, due to a previous Expedited Removal at POE.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
