Denial of Mexican Citizen's Petition for Review of Removal Order

By FindLaw Staff on July 30, 2010 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Pareja v. U.S. Attorney General, 08-4598, concerned a Mexican citizen's petition for review of BIA's final order of removal.  The court denied in part insofar as it attacks Matter of Monreal and the BIA's interpretation of the cancellation of removal statute's hardship standard. The court granted in part to the extent it relates to the BIA's consideration of the number of petitioner's qualifying relatives, and the matter is remanded to the BIA for the limited purpose of allowing it to clarify or to reconsider its application of Matter of Recinas to this case.  The court dismissed the remainder of the petition for lack of jurisdiction.
