United States Second Circuit


Vela-Estrada v. Lynch, 14-619

In an immigration action, the court held that the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) decision not to certify petitioner's untimely appeal of a removal order is a matter of the BIA's discretion and not subject to judicial review. The court granted the petition in part and remanded for the BIA to address petitioner's motion to reopen his removal proceedings.
