Where Does an Appeal of the Board of Immigration Appeals Go to?

Let say that your client wants to appeal a ruling of an immigration judge. The appeal in that case is commonly to the Board of Immigration Appeals in Virginia, and the appeal from there is commonly directly to a United States Circuit Court of Appeals. The world "commonly" here is important; the rules about what is or is not appealable are complicated, just understand that ordinarily when a person is fighting a removal order, one normally goes from the BIA straight to an appeals court, bypassing a judicial-branch federal trial court entirely.
