Aden v. Holder, No. 08-71168

By FindLaw Staff on December 18, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a petition for review of the denial of petitioner's asylum application, the petition is denied where: 1) the BIA properly required corroboration of petitioner's testimony; and 2) though the three letters submitted by petitioner supported the conclusion that petitioner's claimed clan and subclan existed, the law was that in order to reverse the BIA finding, the court of appeals must find that the evidence not only supported such conclusion, but compelled it.
