Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Petitioner's petition for review of the BIA's denial of his asylum application is denied, where government informants do not constitute a "particular social group" for purposes of analyzing their eligibility for asylum, and thus Petitioner did not meet the requirements of 8 U.S.C. section 1101(a)(42)(A).
