Plancarte Sauceda v. Garland

 The Board of Immigration Appeals was not unreasonable in rejecting a proposed particular social group of female nurses on the ground that nursing is not an immutable characteristic. Venue under 8 U.S.C. §1252(b)(2) was proper in the Ninth Circuit where the immigration judge in this case formally transferred venue from Salt Lake City to Boise; thereafter the alien never physically appeared in Salt Lake City, but rather remained in Boise; the IJ indicated that proceedings were conducted in Boise, and the Board held that proper venue was in the Ninth Circuit; both final hearing notices designated Boise as the location for the final hearing; and; the statute expressly allows any of the participants in a removal hearing to appear at the designated hearing location by video conference, pursuant to §1129a(b)(2)(A)(iii), and the IJ and the government attorney elected to do so from Salt Lake City.
