BIA Rules on Failure to File an Application for Relief by Deadline Set by Immigration Judge

The BIA ruled that after an immigration judge has set a deadline for filing relief, the respondent’s opportunity to file the application may be deemed waived, prior to a scheduled hearing, if the deadline passes without submission of the application and no good cause for noncompliance has been shown. The BIA also ruled that, although the respondent was detained, appeared pro se, and used a Spanish interpreter at his video conference hearing, none of these factors, standing alone or taken together, constitute a denial of due process.
