Weng v. Holder, No. 09-1273

Chinese citizen's petition for review of the BIA's denial of a petition for asylum and related relief is denied as, although the IJ discussed some but not all of the documentary evidence petitioner introduced to support her claim of past religious persecution, the remaining evidence would not compel a factfinder to conclude that she had suffered past religious persecution or feared future persecution or that she was credible about her reasons for leaving China.
