APPLICATION:

Reconsideration

This matter was previously before the Board on March 29, 2013, when we dismissed the respondent's appeal from an Immigration Judge's decision denying his motion to reopen removal proceedings, which were conducted (DHS) opposes. Upon reconsideration, we have decided to vacate our March 29, 2013, decision and remand the record to the Immigration Judge for further proceedings. The record reflects that the Immigration Court in Chicago, Illinois initially issued a hearing notice by regular mail to the respondent's address of record stating that he had a master calendar hearing scheduled for July 19, 2012.

A statement from the respondent's friend corroborating the respondent's assertion of non-receipt of the second hearing notice has
