In this unpublished decision, the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) rescinded an in absentia removal order in light of the fact that the respondent was 4 years old at the time of the hearing and is now potentially eligible for relief under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The Board also changed venue from Harlingen, Texas, to Orlando, Florida, because the respondent currently resides in Tampa, Florida, and his sister’s removal proceedings also are being conducted in Orlando. The decision was written by Member John Guendelsberger and joined by Member Sharon Hoffman and Member Elise Manuel.
