Holdings:

            The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • To be eligible for asylum under 8 U.S.C.S. § 1158(a), an applicant must show that he is a "refugee" within the meaning of 8 U.S.C.S. § 1101(a)(42)(A). A "refugee" is an alien who is unwilling to return to his native 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. 8 U.S.C.S. § 1101(a)(42)(A). Once it is established that an alien is a refugee under the statute, the Attorney General may grant asylum, in his discretion. The statute does not define "well-founded fear of persecution." The objective component of the requirement is based on a "reasonable person" approach. To establish a well-founded fear, the alien must set forth specific facts under which a reasonable person would fear persecution. Such facts may be in the form of documentary evidence demonstrating past abuse or threats of future persecution. Where such documentary evidence is unavailable, testimony of the applicant supports an application for asylum if it is credible, persuasive, and refers to specific facts that give rise to an inference that the applicant has been or has a good reason to fear that he or she is singled out for persecution.
