Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Petition for review of a decision by the BIA denying Indonesian petitioner's application for asylum and related relief is granted and remanded where the IJ and BIA committed prejudicial legal error in faulting the petitioner for untimely filing without recognizing either the absence of a filing deadline for the first few years of the period or the undisputed record fact of petitioner's inclusion in his wife's January 2003 asylum application, and as such, it cannot be concluded that the legal errors were harmless.
