CA1 on Evidence...Round 2! - Aguilar-Escoto II

February 08, 2023 (1 min read)

Aguilar-Escoto II

"For the second time, petitioner Irma Aguilar-Escoto, a native and citizen of Honduras, asks us to vacate the Board of Immigration Appeals' ("BIA" or the "Board") rejection of her claim for withholding of removal. When this case was last before us, we vacated the BIA's prior order and instructed the Board to consider the potentially significant documentary evidence submitted in support of Aguilar's claim. See Aguilar-Escoto v. Sessions, 874 F.3d 334, 335 (1st Cir. 2017). Today, we conclude that the BIA again failed to properly consider significant documentary evidence. Consequently, we vacate the Board's removal order and remand for further proceedings."

[Hats off to Kenyon C. Hall, with whom Jack W. Pirozzolo, Sidley Austin, LLP, Charles G. Roth, National Immigrant Justice Center, and Carlos E. Estrada were on brief, for petitioner!]
