Pavlov v. Holder

Federal 7th Circuit Court
Civil Court
Case Number: 
No. 11-3384
Decision Date: 
October 1, 2012
Federal District: 
Petition for Review, Order of Bd. of Immigration Appeals
Petition denied
ALJ did not err in finding that alien was not eligible for adjustment of status to that of permanent resident after finding that alien had previously filed frivolous application for asylum that contained several false assertions regarding when alien had initially entered U.S., as well as nature and extent of his alleged persecution in Bulgaria. Fact that alien had eventually withdrawn his asylum application prior to any hearing on asylum application did not require different result. Moreover, alien had received requisite warning regarding filing of frivolous asylum application on original application form.
