Martinez-Perez v. Sessions, 17-1285

Affirmed the denial of an asylum claim in a case where an immigrant claimed mistreatment in Honduras because of her Afro-Honduran race and physical disability caused by polio. The Board of Immigration Appeals rejected her asylum application upon finding that the harassment she endured in Honduras did not rise to the level of persecution. Agreeing with the Board's assessment, the First Circuit denied her petition for judicial review.
