Urbina-Mejia v. Holder, 09-3567

Petition for review of a decision of the BIA denying petitioner's applications for withholding of removal is denied where: 1) the BIA erred in finding that petitioner was not a member of a particular social group for which he would likely be subject to persecution should he be returned to Honduras; 2) petitioner was a member of the particular group of former gang members, which is impossible to leave save by rejoining the organization; but 3) petitioner failed to show that evidence compelled a finding that he had sufficiently corroborated his testimony with evidence or that he had not committed serious nonpolitical crimes while a member of the gang before coming to the United States.
