    Responsibilities

    Board Members are commissioned to serve in the capacity of an appellate immigration judge in formal, quasi-judicial proceedings to review the determinations of immigration judges in removal and related proceedings, and of certain officers of the DHS in visa petition proceedings and other matters. All members of the Board review the record on appeal, including briefs, exhibits, and transcripts, and hear oral argument when conducted. The Board Member may concur or present dissenting opinions based on his/her view of any given case. The majority of the Board Member's duties fall into the general categories of removal proceedings, discretionary relief, claims of persecution, stays of removal, visa petitions, administrative fines, bond and detention, and immigration judge. Although the majority of the Board Members' time concerns hearing appeals, the incumbent is also qualified to conduct and may be assigned to conduct proceedings in the first instance as an immigration judge.
