Delgado v. Mukasey, 05-4393
Petition for review challenging denial of application for asylum, withholding of removal, and relief under the Convention Against Torture is granted where: 1) the BIA improperly denied Petitioner's application without considering whether she had a well-founded fear of future persecution on account of imputed political opinion; and 2) respondent's denial of petitioner's CAT claim must be vacated as respondent appears to have misstated the record, and the its application of the law does not seem to comport with recent rulings.
