UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE
EXCUTIVE OFFICE FOR IMMIGRATION REVIEW
IMMIGRATION COURT
BALTIMOR M
In the matter of SORTO VVIERA, MIRA I. A number: A 076316387
ORDER OF THE IMMIGRATION JUDGE
Upon consideration of the RESPONDENT'S MOTION TO REOPEN ORDER
ENTERED I ABSENTIA BASED ON LACK OF NOTICE, it is HERBY ORDERED
that the motion to DENIED because:
The respondent argues that even though when a second notice of the hearing was sent
with the correct address, it was addressed to the respondent's frmer guadian and not to
the respondent, who had reached majority by that time, ad the frer guadian was not
living at that address at tat time, it is likely that the postal service did not deliver the
letter, because the named frmer guardian was not living there. Te court views tis as
stak speculation. It is more likely that the letter was in fct delivered. The respondent
having claimed to have appeared at 11 previous master calendars and now no long a
minor would be expected to be aware that such a notice would be coming. The
respondent contends that had the notice been received, the respondent would have
qualifed fr TPS, as if the respondent were estopped fom seeking TPS. The order of
removal i absentia was entered on February 13, 2001. The respondent fles this motion
to reopen on November 20, 2012 . .. nearly 11 years later wt no explaation as to the
delay.
