re: KRISSIA ROSIBEL PAZ-AVALOS

IN REMOVAL PROCEEDINGS APPEAL ON BEHALF OF RESPONDENT: ON BEHALF OF DHS: Hugo Cesar Castro, Esquire

Immigrant & Refugee Appellate Center | www.irac.net

Jennifer Piateski Assistant Chief Counsel

CHARGE: Notice: Sec. 212(a)(6)(A)(i), I&N Act [8 U.S.C. § I 182(a)(6)(A)(i)] Present without being admitted or paroled

APPLICATION: Termination

The respondent, a native and citizen of El Salvador, has denied the factual allegations and charge in the Notice to Appear (Exh. 1). She seeks termination of these removal proceedings, arguing that the Form I-213 submitted by the Department of Homeland Security ("DHS") to prove removability was obtained in violation of her constitutional rights (Exh. 3). See 8 C.F.R. § 1240.S(a) (the DHS bears the burden of establishing removability by clear and convincing evidence). On December 16, 2010, the Immigration Judge denied the respondent's motion to suppress the Form I-213. Subsequently, on March 15, 2011, he found the respondent removable under section 2 I 2(a)(6)(A)(i) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. § I 182(a)(6)(A)(i), relying on the Fonn I-213. As the respondent declined to seek relief, the Immigration Judge ordered her removed to El Salvador. The appeal will be dismissed. The Board reviews an Immigration Judge's findings of fact for clear error. 8 C.F.R. § 1003. I(d)(3)(i). On the other hand, we review de novo issues of law, discretion, or judgment. 8 C.F.R. § 1003.l (d)(3)(ii). In denying the motion to terminate, the Immigration Judge stated that "a removal proceeding is a purely civil action to determine a person's eligibility to remain in the country. Consistent with the civil nature, various protections in criminal proceedings do not apply." Citing INS v. Lopez-Mendoza, 468 U.S. I 032 (1984), the Immigration Judge concluded that "the exclusionary rule does not apply here." alien contesting the legality of evidence must establish a prima facie case of illegality before the OHS will be required to justify the manner in which it obtained the evidence.

A1atter o f Barcenas, 19 l&N Dec. 609, 611 (BIA 1988). To suppress evidence, the alien bears the
burden of proving that the relevant evidence contained erroneous information, or resulted from coercion or duress. Id It is well settled that the Fourth Amendment exclusionary rule does not apply in removal proceedings when the alleged violations are not so "egregious" as to "transgress notions of fundamental fairness." INS v. Lopez-Mendoza, supra, at I 050-51. The respondent claims that on October 28, 2005, Rio Grande, Texas police officers ordered her to enter their vehicle without presenting a warrant for her arrest and transferred her to DHS immigration authorities. On appeal, the respondent argues she was arrested in violation of 8 C.F.R. § 287.8(c)(2)(i). However, section 287 of the Act, 8 U.S.C. § 1357, defines the powers of immigration officers and DHS employees. Furthermore, the respondent has not asserted that the DHS engaged in any egregious conduct. She also does not claim that the statements in the Form I-213 regarding her alienage and manner of entry into the United States are inaccurate. Therefore, the respondent has not satisfied her burden of proving that the Form I-213 should be suppressed. See Matter ofBarcenas, supra, at 611;

Lopez-Mendoza, supra, at 1050-51.
Accordingly, the following order is entered. ORDER: The appeal is dismissed.
