El-Moussa v. Holder, No. 08-3982

In a petition for review of a Board of Immigrant Appeals denial of Petitioner's asylum application, the petition is denied where: 1) the Court of Appeals lacked jurisdiction to review the BIA's decision that Petitioner's asylum application was untimely and that no changed circumstances materially affecting her application had occurred; and 2) the BIA's credibility determinations were supported by substantial evidence.
