In this unpublished decision, the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) upheld a finding that the respondent was ineligible to adjust to lawful permanent residence under Section 245(k) of the INA because she previously engaged in unauthorized employment for more than 180 days as a student in F-1 status. The Board found that the respondent’s parole into the United States following the period of unauthorized employment did not restart the 180-day clock. The decision was written by Member Hugh Mullane and joined by Member Ana Mann and Member Garry Malphrus.

In re: ANA MAGDALENA BOJKO
IN REMOVAL PROCEEDINGS
APPEAL
ON BEHALF OF RESPONDENT: Justin R. Buon, Esquire
ON BEHALF OF DHS: Mirta J. Woodall
Assistant Chief Counsel
APPLICATION: Adjustent of status
SEP
ao 21
The respondent, a native and citizen of Polad, appeals fom te Immigration Judge's
decision dated November 29, 2011, denying her renewed adjustment of status application under
section 245(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act ("Act"), 8 U.S.C. § 1255(a). Te
respondent was granted voluntary departure under section 240B(b)(l) of the Act, 8 U.S.C.
§ 1229c(b )(I). The Depament of Homeland Secuity fled a brief in opposition. The appeal
will be dismissed.
We review fr clear error the fndings of fct, including the deterination of credibility,
made by the Immigation Judge. 8 C.F.R. § 1003.l(d)(3)(i). We review de novo all other issues,
including whether the paies have met the relevant burden of proof, and issues of discretion.
8 C.F .R. § 1003 .1 ( d)(3)(ii). The applicant fr relief fom removal bears the burden of proof to
establish her statutory and discretionay eligibility fr adjustment of stats. See section
240(c)(4)(A) of the Act, 8 U.S.C. § 1229a(c)(4)(A); 8 C.F.R. § 1240.8(d); see also Matter of
Zamora, 25 l&N Dec. 606, 609 (BIA 2011).
The respondent raises various arguments on appeal. On review, we uphold the Immigation
Judge's determination that the respondent did not meet her burden to establish eligibility fr
adjustment of status under section 245(a) of the Act (l.J. at 5-8).
1
The record refects tat the
respondent, afer having been granted a change of status fom a H-2B temporay worker to a F-1
student in September 2006, engaged in unauthorized employment (1.J. at 8; Exh. 2, Exh. 3
at Tabs A, D, E; Tr. at 37-39, 41). See sections 245(c)(8) ad 245(k) of the Act; section
274A(h)(3) of the Act, 8 U.S.C. § 1324a(h)(3); 8 C.F.R. §§ 274a.12(c)(9), 1245.l(b)(lO). The
record indicates that te respondent continued her employment at "Joe and Fras Sausage"
fom September 2006 until she received her employment authorization card in August 2007, a
period that exceeded 180 days (l.J. at 8; Exh. 2, Exh. 3 at Tabs A, E; Tr. at 37-39, 41). The
1 Despite the respondent's assertions on appeal, the Immigration Judge properly exercised his
jurisdiction over the respondent's renewed application fr adjustment of status a she qualifed
under the "arriving alien" exception (Respondent's Br. at 6-7). See 8 C.F.R. § 1245.2(a)(l)(ii);
Matter o/Silitonga, 25 I&N Dec. 89 (BIA 2009); see also Matter of Arrabally, 25 l&N Dec. 771
(BIA 2012).

respondent did not profer evidence to show tat she, as a F-1 student, had autoriztion to be
employed at "Joe and Franks Sausage" fom September 2006 to August 2007, thus filing to
demonstrate that she did not violate te ters of her F-1 student status, or that she was not bar ed
fom adjusting status because she had engaged in uauthorized employment (I.J. at 8; Exh. 2,
Exh. 3 at Tabs A, D, E; Tr. at 37-39, 41). See sections 245(c)(8) ad 245(k) of te Act; see also
8 C.F.R. §§ 214.2(f(9), 274a.12(c)(3), 1245.l(b)(IO). The respondent has not address this issue
on appeal.
Moreover, the respondent has not demonstrated that she is currently in lawful status fr
puroses of adjustment of status. Te respondent admited that she is no longer employed by
"Joe and Franks Sausage" because it went out of business in 2010, and that she stared working
fr a new employer in 2011 (I.J. at 7; Exh. 7; Tr. at 35-37). However, the respondent did not
profer a labor cerifcation and an approved employment-based visa petition (Form 1-140) to
establish the portability of her new employment under section 204G) of the Act, 8 U.S.C.
§ l 154(). See, e.g., Tr. at 47-49; see generally Matter of Marca[ Neto, 25 l&N Dec. 169,
175-76 (BIA 2010) (stating that the Immigration Judge has the authorty to determine whether
the validity of a alien's approved employment-based visa petition is presered under section
204G) of the Act afer the alien has changed jobs or employers). She also did not profer
evidence to establish that she is otherwise eligible to adjust stats based on a immigant visa
that is imediately available to her (See, e.g., Tr. at 47-49). See section 245(a)(3) of the Act;
8 C.F.R. § 1245.1. The respondent has not addressed tese issues on appeal.
In addition, we ae not persuaded by the respondent's aguments on appeal that any period of
unlawfl stats that occurred prior to her October 2008 paole into the United States is irelevant
to her eligibility fr adjustent of status (Respondent's Br. at 5-6).
2
For purposes of section
245(k) of the Act, the respondent's parole into the United States in October 2008 did not
constitute a lawfl admission ad her parole did not restart the 180-day period clock. See
Memorandum fom Donald Neufeld, Acting Associate Director, Domestic Operations fr USCIS,
HQDOMO 70/23.1-P AD06-07, Applicabilit of Section 245() to Certain Employment-Based
Adustment of Status Applications Filed Under Section 245(a) of the Immigration and
Nationalit Act (July 14, 2008)
3
; see generaly Matter of Arrabally, supra, at 777; cf Samirah
v. Holder, 627 F.3d 652, 659-60 (7th Cir. 2010).
Because the respondent is ineligible fr adjustment of status under section 245(k) of the Act,
she did not meet her burden to establish her eligibility fr adjustment of status under section
245(a) of the Act. See sections 240(c)(4)(A) ad 245(a) of te Act; 8 C.F.R. § 1240.8(d). In
light of our disposition, we need not address the other aguments raised on appeal, and we fnd
no basis to remand te case fr fher proceedings. See INS v. Bagamasbad, 429 U.S. 24, 25-26
(1976); Matter ofS-H-, 23 l&N Dec. 462, 466 (BIA 2002).
2
The Immigration Judge's refrence to the respondent's paole in "August 29, 2008" is a
harmless scrivener's error (l.J. at 2).
3 Although not binding on the Board, the USCIS memorandum cited provides usefl, practica
guidance that is not contradicted by section 245(k) of the Act or ay related regulations.

Therefre, we will dismiss the respondent's appeal. However, as the Imigration Judge
granted the respondent voluntary depare, and the respondent provided the Boad with proof
that she posted the bond aount set by the Immigration Judge, we will reinstate the Immigration
Judge's gat of tat relief. See 8 C.F.R. § 1240.26(c)(3); Mater of Gamero, 25 I&N Dec. 164

Deparment of Homeland Security ("DHS"). See section 240B(b) of the Immigration and
Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. § 1229c(b); see also 8 C.F.R. §§ 1240.26(c), (f. In the event te

challenge to this administratively fnal order, such as a petition fr review pursuant to section

the alterate order of removal shall immediately take efect. However, if the respondent fles a
