Barnes v. Holder, 09-1782

Panamanian citizen's petition for review of a BIA's affirmance of an IJ's denial of his motion to terminate removal proceedings is denied as the interpretation of section 1239.2(f) adopted in Hidalgo, holding that removal proceedings may only be terminated pursuant to section 1239.2(f) where the DHS has presented an affirmative communication attesting to the alien's prima facie eligibility for naturalization, and applied by the BIA in this case, is neither clearly erroneous nor inconsistent with the regulation.
