Sugiarto v. Holder, No. 08-2502

By FindLaw Staff on November 10, 2009 3:38 PM

Indonesian national's petition for review of BIA's denial of her application for asylum is denied where: 1) BIA's finding that petitioner failed to establish the requisite nexus between the obviously traumatic incidents of armed robbery and bomb threats and her status as a Christian was supported by substantial evidence on the record; and 2) BIA's decision denying petitioner's claim for asylum on the basis of well-founded fear of future persecution was supported by substantial evidence.
