IN REMOVAL PROCEEDINGS APPEAL ON BEHALF OF RESPONDENT: CHARGE: Notice: Sec. Lodged: Sec. 237(a)(2)(A)(iii), I&N Act [8 U.S.C. § 1227(a)(2)(A)(iii)] Convicted of aggravated felony (as defined in section 10l(a)(43)(F)) 237(a)(2)(A)(iii), l&N Act [8 U.S.C. § 1227(a)(2)(A)(iii)] Convicted of aggravated felony (as defined in section l0l(a)(43)(U)) · Bahar Mirhosseini, Esquire

APPLICATION: Termination; continuance

The Immigration Judge, in his June 14, 2012, decision, concludes that the respondent is removable for having been convicted of an aggravated felony. The record shows that the respondent did not concede this charge. The respondent, on appeal, contends that the Department ofHomeland Security (DHS) has not proven by clear and convincing evidence that he is removable as charged. However, rather then setting out in his written decision in this matter the reasons for his conclusion that the respondent is removable for having been convicted of an aggravated felony, as defined in sections 10l(a)(43)(F) and (U) ofthe Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. §§ 110l(a)(43)(F), (U), the Immigration Judge refers to Exhibit 2 as documentation of the respondent's record of conviction (l.J. at 2); reference to an exhibit is not sufficient. We find that the Immigration Judge has failed to provide sufficient findings of fact and legal reasons for his conclusion as to the respondent's removability. See generally Matter ofM-P-, 20 I&N Dec. 786, 787 (BIA 1994). Therefore, the record will be remanded to the Immigration Judge for preparation of a full decision. Upon preparation ofthe full decision the Immigration Judge shall issue an order administratively returning the record to the Board. The Immigration Judge shall serve the administrative return order on the respondent and the OHS. The Board will thereafter give the parties an opportunity to submit briefs in accordance with the regulations. ORDER: The record is returned to the Immigration Court for further action as required above.
