CA9 on Preponderance, Impeachment Evidence: Urooj v. Holder

"In proceedings to terminate a grant of asylum, DHS must establish the grounds for termination by a preponderance of the evidence. 8 C.F.R. § 1208.24(f). The pivotal legal question before this Panel, which we review de novo, is whether DHS can satisfy its burden through impeachment evidence only. Our conclusion is that it cannot." - Urooj v. Holder, Nov. 6, 2013.  [Hats off to Jonathan Kaufman!]
