Demiraj v. Holder, 08-60991

In a petition for review of the decision of the BIA denying petitioners' applications for asylum, withholding of removal, and protection under the Convention Against Torture, the petition for review is denied where: 1) the record disclosed no evidence that petitoner would be targeted for her membership in her family as such; 2) the IJ had sufficient record evidence to conclude that the state was not "more likely than not" to acquiesce in torture and therefore also to deny relief under that treaty.
