Tarraf v. Gonzales, 06-2835

Petition for review of denial of petitioner's application for asylum, withholding of removal and relief under the Convention Against Torture is denied where: 1) the application for asylum was not filed within the one year deadline; 2) the IJ and BIA conclusions that petitioner's testimony was not credible and did not demonstrate past persecution were supported by substantial evidence; and 3) the court does not have jurisdiction over petitioner's claim that the IJ denied him due process of law by summarily rejecting his request for CAT relief without applying the proper standards since the claim was not presented to the BIA.
