Immigration bureau's power under CA 613

The Bureau of Immigration is the agency that can best determine whether a petitioner violated certain provisions of C.A. No. 613, as amended. In this jurisdiction, courts will not interfere in matters which are addressed to the sound discretion of government agencies entrusted with the regulation of activities coming under the special technical knowledge and training of such agencies. By reason of the special knowledge and expertise of administrative departments over matters falling within their jurisdiction, they are in a better position to pass judgment thereon and their findings of fact in that regard are generally accorded respect, if not finality, by the courts. (Tze Sun Wong v. Kenny Wong, G.R. No. 180364, December 3, 2014)
