Caal-Tiul v. Holder, No. 08-2464

By FindLaw Staff on September 10, 2009 5:15 PM

Guatemalan national's petition for review a BIA's decision reversing the Immigration Judge's granting of asylum is denied where the petitioner failed to establish a well-founded fear of persecution on account of a protected ground and the standard of BIA review makes no difference because there is no evidence that a gang was in any way motivated by petitioner's status as an indigenous female.
