An order of removal entered was reversed when the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit vacated, reversed, and remanded the client’s case to the Board of Immigration Appeals.  The Second Circuit agreed that prior counsel had been ineffective in prior counsel’s erroneous legal strategy so as to prejudice the client’s case in causing the lower court to doubt her credibility, and that her lengthy detention due to her work at an American military base in her home country constituted past persecution warranting protection.  The case was remanded for further review.
