CA8 on Continuances: Gonzales Chechaluno v. Garland

August 12, 2021 (1 min read)

Gonzales Chechaluno v. Garland

"In sum, we conclude that the BIA abused its discretion in two respects: it departed from established policy when it failed either to apply the Sanchez Sosa factors or to remand to allow the IJ do so, and it failed to provide a rational explanation for its decision, including its treatment of this court’s binding precedent in Caballero-Martinez. ... We grant the petition for review, vacate the BIA’s May 2020 order, and remand for proceedings consistent with this opinion."
