Respondent. _____________________________________ FOR PETITIONERS: Jillian M. Dume, Labrada Dume & Associates, New York, NY. FOR RESPONDENT: Brian Boynton, Acting Assistant Attorney General; Brianne Whelan Cohen, Senior Litigation Counsel; Rebecca Hoffberg Phillips, Trial Attorney, Office of Immigration Litigation, United States Department of Justice, Washington, DC. UPON DUE CONSIDERATION of this petition for review of a Board of Immigration Appeals (“BIA”) decision, it is hereby ORDERED, ADJUDGED, AND DECREED that the petition for review is DENIED IN PART and DISMISSED IN PART. Petitioners Erika Marisol Solano-Sanchez, Jaqueline Ariana Cardoza-Solano, Manuel Alexander Valencia-Solano, Manuel Enrique Valencia-Duran, natives and citizens of El Salvador, seek review of a March 18, 2020 decision of the BIA denying their motion to reopen their removal proceedings.

The time for filing a motion to reopen may be equitably tolled if a movant establishes that he or she received ineffective assistance of counsel. See Iavorski v. INS, 232 F.3d 124, 134 (2d Cir. 2000). The BIA did not abuse its discretion in declining to equitably toll the time because Petitioners failed to show they suffered prejudice due to their former counsel’s representation in the underlying proceedings. See Rabiu v. INS, 41 F.3d 879, 882 (2d Cir. 1994) (requiring …
