S-V- asylum case

Sample language on U.S. asylum law standards from memorandum analyzing Imputed Political Opinion and Particular Social Group grounds


This memorandum analyzes a claim for asylum and Convention Against Torture (CAT) relief for a person who enters the United States because he is fleeing politically-motivated persecution and social-group-motivated persecution. The general standards for asylum and CAT are laid out, and the memorandum addresses this respondent's likelihood of success on each theory of relief, and includes analysis of potential bars to relief for an asylum applicant. The case is not Circuit-specific, therefore use care in modifying any legal analysis to reflect the jurisdiction that a particular client finds himself in. Also note that the memorandum assumes that the REAL ID Act of 2005 is not applicable to this case.
