In this unpublished decision, the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) granted an appeal filed by the Department of Homeland Security of an immigration judge’s decision to terminate proceedings without prejudice rather than grant a joint request for administrative closure. The Board noted that the respondent did not oppose the DHS appeal, and stated that joint motions should ordinarily be granted. The decision was written by Member David Holmes and joined by Member Neil Miller and Member Molly Kendall-Clark.
