Camara v. US Attorney Gen., No. 07-3892

By FindLaw Staff | Last updated on

Petition for review of a decision by the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) denying petitioner's application for asylum is granted and remanded where substantial evidence does not support the BIA's conclusion that petitioner did not experience past persecution in the Ivory Coast, as petitioner directly witnessed abduction of her father by a group that she can definitively identify as having directly and unambiguously threatened her with harm as well.
