"Sea’s newly retained counsel discovered that one of the principal documents relied on by the Immigration Judge in support of his determination that Sea was not credible had been improperly translated. Therefore, we STAY the appeal to allow Sea to first bring this issue before the Board of Immigration Appeals." - Sea v. Holder, Nov. 8, 2011. [Hats off to Guy Sohou!]
These "remand to the BIA" rulings are nothing resembling a victory. The BIA is just going to sit on this for several years before making a decision while the poor guy stays deported. The government still wins in keeping him out of the country indefinitely.
Told from the perspective of somebody still waiting for a BIA remand decision from the 5th circuit after 13 months, after they sat on it 2 years the first time through.
