Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In a petition for review of the BIA's order denying petitioner a waiver of the spousal joint-filing requirement for removal of the conditions on his permanent resident status, the petition is denied where: 1) petitioner produced virtually no documentation in support of his claim of a bona fide marriage; and 2) the Immigration Judge's discussion of extreme hardship was brief, but her reasoning was sufficiently clear and supported by the evidence.
