Attorney General Holds Immigration Judges and BIA have No Authority for Administrative Closure

Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Thursday barred immigration judges and the Board of Immigration Appeals from administratively closing cases, saying immigration judges do not have the authority to indefinitely suspend immigration proceedings. 

He said exceptions could be made in some cases, including when an immigrant has certain forms of legal status pending.
