MOT10N
Date:
ON BEHALF OF RESPONDENT: Rober M. Birach, Esquire
ON BEHALF OF DHS: Theresa Bross
Assistat Chief Counsel
APPLICATION: Reopening
MAR 2 5 20ft
On Setember 17, 2010, the Boad dismissed te respondent's appeal fom the Im igaton
Judge' September 1, 2009, decision denying his application fr cacellation of removal under
section 240A(a) of te Immigation and Nationalit Act, 8 U.S.C. 1229b(a). On December 13,
2010, te respondent fled this timely motion to reopen. See section 240(c)(7) of the Act, 8 U.S.C.
1229a(c)(7); 8 C.F.R. 1003.2(c). The Depaent of Homeland Securt opposes the motion.
The Boad will gat te motion and remad the record to te Imigation Judge.
The Imigtion Judge noted te respondent's "considerable equities," but also considered the
respondent's "sigifcat adverse fctors," including his criminal history, ad deterined tat te
respondent did not merit the desired relief as a matter of discretion. See Imigation Judge's
Decision at 8-10. I reaching his decision, te Imigation Judge emphasized that the respondent
ofered minimal evidence to coroborate key elements of his claims relating to his residency,
hadship, assets, ad rehabilitaton.
Te respondent seeks reopening based on a claim of inefective assistace of counsel aganst
his frer attorey. He specifcally agues that his frer attorey did not infr him tat he
needed to prove that he merted te relief as a matter of discretion, ad that she failed to infr h
of the tye of evidence required to prove tat he is desering of a fvorable exercise of discretion.
Wit this motion, the respondent has ofered evidence of his compliace wit te procedural
requirements fr a inefective assistance of counsel clam. See Ssajje v. Ashcrof, 350 F.3d 528,
533 (6t Cir. 2003); Matter of Lozada, 19 I&N Dec. 637 (BI 1988).
The respondent has also ofered evidence tat he eaed income in 2009, and tat he fled income
ta rets in 2007 and 2008. Furher, he has ofered a leter fom Yemen Arab Aerca Center
fr Economic ad Social Service attesting to community service, ad a letter fom the mother of this
United States citizen children describing his chaacter.
