The Seventh Circuit granted the petition for review and remanded to the Board of Immigration Appeal (BIA), finding that the Immigration Judge and the BIA erred in holding that the Mexican petitioner, who had been tortured by Mexican police at the behest of the Zetas drug cartel because of an unpaid drug debt and had informed against the cartel to the FBI and the DEA, was not entitled to deferral of removal under the Convention Against Torture (CAT).
