By FindLaw Staff on August 06, 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 denied where: 1) plaintiff did not prove a likelihood that he would be tortured upon return to Pakistan by government officials; and 2) the Board of Immigration Appeals properly concluded that he did not identify an appropriate social group as his indebtedness to a creditor is not an immutable characteristic since it is not innate or fundamental to his identity.
