Tasya v. Holder, No. 08-1586

Petition for review of an order denying asylum, withholding of removal, and protection under the Convention Against Torture is denied where the Board of Immigration Appeal's brief treatment of the petitioners' claims of past persecution was adequate, and the Board was not compelled to find that the petitioners' claimed fear of future persecution was well-founded given given the lack of past persecution, the continued uneventful presence in Indonesia of close family members, and the country conditions evidence.
