In re: DANIEL TEYE LOWOR
IN REMOVAL PROCEEDINGS
APPEAL
Date:
ON BEHALF OF RESPONDENT: Michele H. Kane, Esquire
APPLICATION: Reopening
APR - 2 2014
The respondent, a native and citizen of Ghana, appeals fom the January 23, 2012, decision
of the Imigration Judge denying his motion to reopen the proceedings. The appeal will be
sustained ad the record remaded.
We review te fndings of fct, including determinations of credibility, made by the
Imigration Judge uder a "clearly eroneous" standad. 8 C.F.R. § 1003.l(d)(3)(i). We review
all oter issues, including wheter or not the paries have met the relevat burden of proof, and
issues of discretion, under a de novo standard. 8 C.F.R. § 1003.l(d)(3)(ii).
The Immigration Judge's decision here does not provide any fct-fnding or aalysis,
but instead denies the respondent's motion to reopen "fr the reasons stated in the DHS's
Opposition." Under these circumstances, we fnd the record inadequate fr review. A
Immigation Judge's decision that lacks sufcient analysis does not provide an adequate
opporunity to the alien to contest te Immigration Judge's determinations on appea and leaves
the Boad wtout adequate means of reviewing the reasons fr te Immigration Judge's decision.
Mater of M-P-, 20 I&N Dec. 786 (BIA 1994) (fnding that an Immigation Judge must flly
explain the reasons fr denying a motion to allow the respondent a fair opporunity to contest
the decision and the Board an opporunit fr meaningfl appellate review); see also Mater of
A-P-, 22 I&N Dec. 468 (BIA 1999).
Accordingly, the record will be remanded to the Immigration Judge fr the issuance of a
more complete decision.
ORDER: The record is retued to the Immigration Court fr frther proceedings m
accordance with this decision.
Board Member Hugh G. Mullane dissents without opinion.
