In this unpublished decision, the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) dismissed in part an interlocutory appeal filed by the Department of Homeland Security upon finding the immigration judge’s determination that the respondent was mentally incompetent to participate in proceedings was not clearly erroneous. The Board remanded the case for further consideration, however, of whether safeguards other than administrative closure would be sufficient to allow the respondent to proceed with a full and fair hearing, such as the facilitation of medical treatment or a change of venue to a location closer to family members. The decision was written by Member Anne Greer and joined by Member Molly Kendall-Clark and Chairman David Neal.
