Stump v. United States

Facts:

            Petitioner alien applied for asylum under 8 U.S.C.S. §§ 1101 and 1158. An immigration judge (IJ) denied the application. The Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) dismissed the alien's appeal. The alien petitioned for review of the BIA's order.

Holdings:

            The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • The Immigration and Naturalization Act authorizes the Attorney General to confer asylum on any refugee. 8 U.S.C.S. § 1158(a). It defines a refugee as a person unwilling or unable 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).
  • A determination regarding eligibility for asylum is affirmed if supported by substantial evidence on the record considered as a whole. Administrative findings of fact, including findings on credibility, are conclusive unless any reasonable adjudicator would be compelled to decide to the contrary. 8 U.S.C.S. § 1252(b)(4)(B). Legal issues are reviewed de novo, affording appropriate deference to the Board of Immigration Appeals' (BIA) interpretation of the Immigration and Naturalization Act and any attendant regulations. The court will reverse the Board only if the evidence presented was so compelling that no reasonable factfinder could fail to find the requisite fear of persecution.
