< Back to current issue of Immigration Daily < Back to current issue of Immigrant's Weekly

Dear Editor:
In today's issue, you have the following sentence: "The BIA had summarily dismissed the Petitioners' matter and the court remanded the case back to the BIA for consideration of the merits."

When there is a "remand," that means the higher tribunal returned the matter to the lower tribunal. Thus, when you state that the tribunal "remanded the case back," you are in fact being "redundent and repetitive." Either the case was sent back or it was remanded, not both.

I realize that this is no big deal, just a pet peeve of mine. Therefore, I appreciate your allowing me to bring it to your attention.
