Gallimore v. Attorney General, 08-3379, concerned a Jamaican citizen's petition for review of BIA's final order of removal on the ground that petitioner's conviction alone rendered him ineligible for discretionary relief under INA section 212(c).  In granting the petition, the court remanded the matter as, because the BIA's analysis in all likelihood rests on an historically inaccurate premise, it cannot stand.  Alternatively, BIA's opinion fails adequately to explain its reasoning and appears incorrect as a matter of law.
