Khan v. Holder, No. 07-72586

By FindLaw Staff on September 09, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a petition for review of the BIA's decision denying petitioner's application for asylum and withholding of removal, the petition is denied where the Immigration Judge properly applied the terrorism bar in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) because the definition of "terrorist activity" under the INA does not provide an exception for armed resistance against military targets that is permitted under the international law of armed conflict.
