MTR can be equitable Tolled


The Fifth Circuit granted the petition for review, holding that the 90-day deadline for filing motions to reopen can be equitably tolled, and remanding for the BIA to determine if equitable tolling was appropriate in the petitioner’s case. The court urged the BIA not to apply the equitable tolling test “too harshly,” noting the difficulties faced by immigrants who may be “poor, uneducated, unskilled in the English language, and effectively unable to follow developments in the American legal system—much less read and digest complicated legal decisions.”
