Immigration – asylum — India

United States Court of Appeals For the Seventh Circuit


Immigration – asylum — India

Asylum seekers from India failed to show they were persecuted for testifying against criminals in India.

“The petitioners have not presented evidence that would require a factfinder to conclude that they were subjected to past persecution or that any harm they suffered was on account of a statutorily protected ground. Accordingly, we deny the petition for review with respect to their underlying removal order. Further, the Board did not irrationally deny their motion to reopen on the basis of ineffective assistance because the petitioners have not established prejudice from any of counsel’s actions.”

Petitions Denied.
