APPLICATION: Reopening; termination


The respondent filed the instant motion to reopen seeking termination to enable him to apply
for adjustment of status before the United States Citizenship and Im.migration Services. See
section 240(c)(7) of the Im.migration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. 1229a(c)(7); 8 C.F.R.
1003.2(c). The Department of Homeland Security has not opposed the motion.
The respondent has offered evidence that he is the beneficiary of an approved visa petition
(Form I-130) filed by his United States citizen wife. He was granted Temporary Protected Status
("TPS"). The respondent returned to the United States pursuant to a grant of advance parole on
December 11, 2016. He has offered evidence that he and his wife are the parents of two United
States citizen children. Given the particular circumstances presented, including the evidence of
the approved visa petition, we will grant the respondent's unopposed motion to reopen and
terminate proceedings without prejudice. See Matter of J-J-, 21 I&N Dec. 976, 984 (BIA 1997);
8 C.F.R. 1003.2(a). Accordingly, the motion to reopen is granted

FURTHER ORDER: The removal proceedings are terminated without prejudice and the
record is returned to the Immigration Court without further Board action.
