CA9 on Abuse of Discretion: Alcarez-Rodriguez v. Garland

December 28, 2023 (1 min read)

Alcarez-Rodriguez v. Garland

"Ashley Rodriguez, a native and citizen of Mexico, petitions for review of the Board of Immigration Appeals’s (BIA’s) decision and order denying her motion to remand her removal proceedings to the Immigration Judge (IJ) for the consideration of her application for asylum, withholding of removal, and protection under the Convention Against Torture (CAT). Because the BIA did not adequately consider Rodriguez’s arguments in support of her motion to remand, we GRANT the petition for review and REMAND the case to the agency to properly consider the merits of Rodriguez’s motion."
