Urbina-Dore v. Holder

Federal 7th Circuit Court
Civil Court
Case Number: 
No. 13-1679
Decision Date: 
November 18, 2013
Federal District: 
Petition for Review, Order of Bd. of Immigration Appeals
Petition denied
Record contained sufficient evidence to support IJ’s denial of alien’s (native of Honduras) application for asylum based on claim that return to Honduras would subject alien to persecution as member of “social group” of persons owning timberlands that were subject to squatters/trespassers that threatened said landowners seeking to evict said squatters. Record showed that Honduras govt. was both willing and able to control said squatters, who had actually occupied alien’s land, and that said willingness by govt. defeated instant asylum claim.
