Retired IJs and Former BIA Members Express Disappointment in AG’s Decision in Matter of Castro-Tum

Retired immigration judges (IJs) and former members of the BIA expressed disappointment in Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ decision in Matter of Castro-Tum, which held IJs and the BIA do not have authority to administratively close cases unless they meet very narrow criteria. The National Association of Immigration Judges (NAIJ) sent a letter on January 30, 2018, urging Sessions to affirm the authority of IJs and the BIA to administratively close cases. See AILA’s featured issue page for more information.
