    Matter of W-Y-U-

Matter of Avetisyan, 25 I&N Dec. 688 (BIA 2012), clarified.

    (2) In considering administrative closure, an Immigration Judge cannot review whether an alien falls within the enforcement priorities of the Department of Homeland Security, which has exclusive jurisdiction over matters of prosecutorial discretion.
