Although the result was not favorable to immigration practitioners, I write to make you aware of the First Circuit's decision in Albathani v. INS/Ashcroft, decided February 6, 2003, where a 3-judge panel upheld the BIA's new practice of issuing affirmances without opinion. The court was troubled by certain facets of the process, but nonetheless affirmed my client's denial of asylum.
