Romero v. Att’y Gen.

In Romero v. Att’y Gen., the Third Circuit affirmed an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals that affirmed an immigration judge’s denial of the petitioner’s application for withholding of removal. The petitioner argued that the immigration judge lacked jurisdiction because the charging document did not contain the precise date and time of his first hearing. The Third Circuit disagreed, noting that the charging document was a Notice of Referral to the Immigration Judge. The jurisprudence, which the petitioner relied on, was premised on a case in which the charging document was a Notice to Appeal.
