Cruz v. Sessions, 15-2511

In a petition for review of a final order of removal entered by the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), brought by a citizen of Honduras, the petition is granted where her familial relationship with her husband necessarily was one central reason for the persecution and fear of future persecution established by petitioner, thereby meeting the statutory 'nexus requirement' for asylum provided in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) in 8 U.S.C. section 1158(b)(1)(B)(i).
