Makieh v. Holder, No. 08-2213

By FindLaw Staff on July 15, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Petition for review of an order denying asylum, withholding of removal, and protection under the Convention Against Torture is dismissed in part and denied in part where: 1) there was no jurisdiction to consider the asylum application as the application did not present any colorable constitutional claims or questions of law; and 2) substantial evidence supported denying the application for withholding of removal and for protection under the CAT as the record did not support a claim that he would more likely than not be persecuted and tortured if he were to return to Syria.
