In this unpublished decision, the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) found the respondent abandoned his lawful permanent resident status and denied his application for a waiver of inadmissibility under INA 211(b). The Board found that the respondent was continuously outside the United States for nearly four years, that he continued to work in the Dominican Republic for two years after obtaining a business degree, and that his three children and their mother continue to live in the Dominican Republic. The decision was written by Member Roger Pauley.
