A new unpublished BIA Decision reverses an Immigration Judge’s decision denying a motion to reopen removal proceedings where the immigrant was ordered removed in absentia. Amazingly, because the immigrant “declined to state his name” at the hearing, the Judge ordered him removed in absentia for refusing to identify himself. The Board sustained the appeal and said the IJ should not have done that.
