Fernando Barajas Acevedo, A087 906 037 (BIA Aug. 15, 2013)

In this unpublished decision, the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) found the respondent knowingly and intelligently waived his right to counsel by stating "I'm ready" when asked if he was prepared to represent himself. The Board remanded the case, however, because the Immigration Judge denied the respondent's request for pre-conclusion voluntary departure but did not determine whether he was eligible for post-conclusion voluntary departure. The decision was written by Member Roger Pauley.
