Immigration Cases

By FindLaw Staff on April 19, 2010 12:50 PM

Vasquez v. Holder, No. 05-73714, concerned a petition for review of the BIA's denial of petitioner's application for an extreme hardship waiver of removal.  The Ninth Circuit granted the petition, holding that an alien whose legal status as the spouse of a citizen is later terminated because the marriage was fraudulent is eligible for discretionary relief from removal.

Singh v. Holder, No. 08-70434, involved a petition for review of the denial of petitioner's asylum application.  The court of appeals denied the petition, on the grounds that 1) the Immigration Judge (IJ) possessed the authority to require corroborating evidence; and 2) the IJ's conclusion that petitioner's uncorroborated testimony was insufficient to carry his burden to prove his date of entry was proper.
