Submitted Jan. 22, 1993.*
Decided Feb. 4, 1993.
NOTICE: Ninth Circuit Rule 36-3 provides that dispositions other than opinions or orders designated for publication are not precedential and should not be cited except when relevant under the doctrines of law of the case, res judicata, or collateral estoppel.
Petition to Review a Decision of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, INS No. Apm-ewg-mps.
REVERSED AND REMANDED.
Before CHOY, SCHROEDER and BRUNETTI, Circuit Judges.
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.
