The Board of Immigration Appeals (Board) has determined that an asylee who has adjusted status to lawful permanent residence has relinquished his asylee status, and can be removed notwithstanding the restrictions on removal of asylees found in section 208(c)(2) of the INA.  The Board noted an applicant voluntarily relinquishes the protections of being an asylee when he adjusts status, and has the option of remaining an asylee indefinitely.
