Second Circuit on Asylum

Second Circuit on Asylum

"[The IJ's approach mistakenly treats the decision-making process that an asylum applicant undergoes in deciding whether to leave one's friends, family, and country forever as if it were a mathematic equation -- impersonal, predictable, and static -- and ignores the reality that the decision to seek asylum is a process that, for many applicants, is personal, inscrutable, and dynamic." Pavlova v. INS, Mar. 14, 2006.
