Toussaint v. Attorney Gen. of the US, 05-3311

For purposes of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), criminal deportees are not recognized as a social group. A petition for review of a BIA's order of removal of petitioner to Haiti is denied over challenges to the sufficiency of the BIA's findings, a claim that the BIA failed to analyze separately her claims under the INA and the CAT, and that the BIA failed to consider her status as a criminal deportee for purposes of a claim under the INA.
