The Court upheld a decision that evidence submitted to the PRRA officer was not new evidence noting:
[25] In this case, the officer excluded the evidence not because it related to risk allegations made before the Board, but rather because it did not demonstrate any new developments in any risks identified before the Board, any new risks faced by the applicant, or any new facts that had come to the applicant’s attention subsequent to her hearing before the Board. In addition, the Board concluded that none of the evidence successfully rebutted the Board’s findings of fact.
