The Fifth Circuit has affirmed the denial of a motion to reopen filed by a Guatemalan woman alleging that the rise in femicide from 1998 to 2013 qualifies as a changed country condition warranting reopening her proceedings.  "Although the documents Ramos-Lopez submitted with her motion to reopen indicate that the number of women murdered in Guatemala has increased and decreased at various intervals over the years and that the number murdered has more recently been increasing, Ramos-Lopez did not compare, in any meaningful way, the conditions existing when she filed her motion to reopen in 2013 with those at the time of her 1998 removal hearing and how those general conditions relate to her specific claims.
