Remand. The Second Circuit has held that it has the authority to remand an issue of nationality to the Board of Immigration Appeals if the issue had been presented but not decided by the Board. The Government had taken the position that 8 U.S.C. 1252(b)(5), which provides that the Court of Appeals is to decide issues relating to nationality without saying anything about remand, precludes the Court from sending a nationality case back to the BIA. The Court disagreed.
