Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In a petition for review of the BIA's order denying petitioners asylum, withholding of removal, and relief under the Convention Against Torture, the petition is denied where: 1) State Department country reports can support a factual finding of changed conditions to rebut a presumption of a well-founded fear of future persecution; and 2) the record evidence did not compel a reversal of the IJ's decision to deny asylum.
