Shrestha v. Holder, No. 08-74751

By FindLaw Staff on January 06, 2010 | 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 record's demonstration that petitioner's unresponsiveness was a pattern throughout the hearing was one of the circumstances that the REAL ID Act entitled the BIA to consider in assessing petitioner's credibility; and 2) petitioner's inability to consistently describe the underlying events that gave rise to his alleged fear of persecution was an important factor that could be relied upon by the Immigration Judge in making an adverse credibility determination.
