REDACTED v. Whitaker
REDACTED (9th Cir.)
U.S. Department of Homeland Security
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
Petition for review
The Board of Immigration Appeals abused its discretion by failing to find that the alien was prejudiced by his prior counsel’s ineffectiveness, and by failing to provide a reasoned decision addressing his request to reopen sua sponte because he was eligible for adjustment of status based on the discharge of a prior New York state conviction.
