Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Petition for review of an order denying asylum, withholding of removal, and protection under the Convention Against Torture is denied where: 1) the present does not have jurisdiction to review the agency's decision that plaintiff's asylum application was untimely; and 2) the agency did not err in denying their request for withholding of removal, as plaintiff's failed to cite any evidence in the record which would support a finding that they faced a threat because of their membership in a particular social group or any other relevant statutory ground if they were returned to their home country.
