In this unpublished decision, the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) upheld an order of removal against the respondents and denied their claim that the government was equitably estopped from removing them from the country based on the lead respondent's receipt of a notice from USCIS erroneously stating that an application to adjust to permanent resident status had been granted and that he was authorized to work in the country. The decision was written by Member Michael Creppy.
