Summary as introduced:
Juvenile and domestic relations district court; jurisdiction over juveniles who are not lawfully present in the United States. Prohibits the juvenile and domestic relations district court from making a determination that it is not in a juvenile's best interest to return to his home country when such juvenile is not lawfully present in the United States and when the purpose of making such determination is for the juvenile's eligibility for special immigrant juvenile classification. The bill exempts decisions made by the court for the purposes of the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act and the Hague Convention on Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption of 1993, as amended.
