CA9 on Asylum, Nexus, Evidence, Motions to Reopen: Reyes-Corado v. Garland

August 11, 2023 (1 min read)

Reyes-Corado v. Garland

"Francisco Reyes-Corado (“Reyes-Corado”), a native and citizen of Guatemala, petitions for review of a decision of the Board of Immigration Appeals (“BIA”) denying ReyesCorado’s motion to reopen. We grant the petition for review and remand to the BIA for further proceedings consistent with this opinion. 1

1 Reyes-Corado has filed a separate petition for review of the BIA’s denial of a subsequent motion to reopen. We address Reyes-Corado’s petition for review in [unpublished] Case No. 21-149 separately.

We remand for the BIA to reconsider whether Reyes-Corado established prima facie eligibility for relief and otherwise reevaluate the motion to reopen in light of the principles set forth in this opinion."
