CA6 on Asylum, Changed Country Conditions: Preçetaj v. Sessions

Preçetaj v. Sessions - "Çile Preçetaj petitions for our review of the order of the Board of Immigration Appeals (“Board” or “BIA”) denying her motion to reopen her removal proceeding. At issue is whether the Board erred in denying Preçetaj’s motion based on the evidence she submitted regarding changed country conditions, and, if the Board erred, whether such error is harmless. We hold that the Board erred and such error is not harmless; thus, we REMAND the motion to the Board."
