Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In a petition for review of the BIA's denial of petitioner's second motion to reopen his removal proceedings, the petition is denied where the BIA correctly determined that 8 C.F.R. section 1003.2(d)'s post-departure bar divested it of jurisdiction to review a motion to reopen filed by a removed alien, like petitioner, even though relevant regulations allowed an alien to file one motion to reopen within 90 days.
