The BIA has issued a new unpublished opinion which discusses whether an IJ should continue removal proceedings when the immigrant seeks to apply for a U visa, as the victim of a crime.  In In re Hernandez-Guttierez, the BIA concluded that the immigrant’s desire to apply for a U Visa was not “good cause” for a continuance, especially since the person could continue to pursue the U Visa even after he has left the country.
