Good BIA Unpubs in Sec. 236(a) Bond Cases

Ben Winograd writes: "I just uploaded the batch of decisions below, which involve favorable rulings in bond cases under section 236(a).  Unfortunately, the Board stopped making bond-related decisions publicly available in mid-2011, which I why I don't have anything since.  File under "oldies but goodies."

In this unpublished decision, the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) granted the respondent's appeal from a motion to lower a $7,500 bond imposed by DHS where the immigration judge erroneously concluded that the respondent, who had a pending U visa application, was eligible for no forms of relief from removal, and did not consider letters of support from family members living lawfully in the United States. The decision was written by Member Roger Pauley and joined by Member Patricia Cole and Member Anne Greer. 
Salvador Jr. Villareal, A092 722 540 (BIA March 17, 2011)

The decision was written by Member Carol King and joined by Member Charles Adkins-Blanch and Member John Guendelsberger.
Ricardo Jose Rodriguez, A200 886 952 (BIA April 14, 2011)
In this unpublished decision, the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) remanded for further clarification of an order setting bond at $15,000 where the immigration judge failed to make findings of fact regarding the respondent's dangerousness, and where statements regarding the respondent's potential eligibility for relief were clearly erroneous.
