Kazemzadeh v. U.S. Atty. Gen'l., No. 08-12857
In a petition for review of the BIA's denial of an Iranian native's application for asylum and withholding of removal, the petition is granted in part where the Board failed to give reasoned consideration to petitioner's evidence of a well-founded fear of persecution based on petitioner's religion, or more specifically, his conversion from Islam to Christianity while in the United States. However, the petition is denied in part, where substantial evidence supported the BIA's determination that petitioner failed to prove a well-founded fear of persecution based on his political opinion.
