Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Petition for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals' (BIA) denying Pakistani petitioner's application for asylum, withholding of removal and relief under the Convention Against Torture (CAT) is denied where: 1) BIA's factual determination that petitioner failed to file his asylum application within one year and the board's decision that he does not qualify for a time extension are unreviewable; 2) BIA's denial of petition for withholding of removal and protection under the CAT is sufficiently supported by the record to establish that petitioner had not suffered past persecution or the likelihood of future persecution.
