Holdings:

            The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • In considering a petition for review, the appellate court reviews only the findings and order of the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), not those of the Immigration Judge (IJ). The BIA has the power to review an IJ's findings de novo, to make its own findings even as to matters of credibility, and to assess the legal sufficiency of the evidence.
  • An alien is only eligible for asylum if he is a refugee, and a refugee is any person who is unable to return to his or her country because of persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion. The standard for proving a well-founded fear of persecution is the reasonable person test. Therefore, an individual seeking asylum must show (1) that he has a subjective fear of persecution based on race, religion, nationality, social group membership, or political opinion, (2) that a reasonable person would have a fear of persecution in that situation, and (3) that his fear has some basis in objective reality.
