MEMORANDUM**

Petitioner Edwin Alberto Escobar-Moreira seeks review of the Board of Immigration Appeals' ("BIA") dismissal of his motion to reopen. As part of its reasons for denying petitioner's claim, the BIA took administrative notice that the Sandinistas no longer control the Nicaraguan government. For this reason, we reverse and remand for reconsideration in light of Castillo-Villagra v. I.N.S., 972 F.2d 1017 (9th Cir.1992).

REVERSED and REMANDED.

*

The panel finds this case appropriate for submission without argument pursuant to Fed.R.App.P. 34(a) and Ninth Circuit Rule 34-4

This disposition is not appropriate for publication and may not be cited to or by the courts of this circuit except as provided by 9th Cir.R. 36-3
