Cazun v. Attorney General US, 15-3374

In an action involving a native and citizen of Guatemala involving the issue of whether an alien subject to a reinstated removal order may apply for asylum, the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) decision, that she was statutorily ineligible to apply because her previous order of removal had been reinstated, is affirmed where although Congress has not spoken clearly on the issue in the relevant statute, the Court gives Chevron deference to the BIA's reasonable statutory interpretation that aliens subject to reinstated removal orders are ineligible to apply for asylum.
