Bailey Roese may not be a native Kentuckian, but her commitment to community and social justice in the Commonwealth was apparent when she joined BGD in 2013.

Adding to the growing list of courts ruling on immigration cases this month, the Sixth Circuit recently vacated a Board of Immigration Appeals (“BIA”) decision to deny a woman’s motion to reopen her immigration proceedings. In a unanimous opinion, Judge John Bush held that the Board of Immigration Appeals had abused its discretion by discrediting evidence presented by the woman that she would be singled out for persecution and that circumstances in her native country had changed.  The decision sheds lights on how the Sixth Circuit intends to review similar cases in the future and provides a roadmap for practitioners and their clients attempting to ascertain which information may help or hurt them during their own immigration proceedings.
