KROUGLIAK v. IMMIGRATION & NATURALIZATION SERV., 01-3141
Motion to reopen appellant's asylum case, based on new evidence of his persecution in the Ukraine, was properly denied where evidence was neither new nor previously unavailable at time of asylum hearing; a motion to remand for adjustment of alien status after a case has been closed should be treated as one to reopen proceedings.
