MEMORANDUM***

2

Bladimir Acosta-Claros' request for asylum or withholding of deportation was denied by an Immigration Judge. Acosta-Claros appealed to the Board of Immigration Appeals and the Board dismissed the appeal as abandoned because Acosta-Claros did not notify his representative or the BIA of his current address. After thorough review of the record and consideration of the arguments presented we conclude the Board properly dismissed Acosta-Claros' appeal as abandoned.
