Al Amiri v. Rosen
"Salim Al Amiri, an Iraqi citizen, seeks relief from removal on the grounds of asylum, withholding of removal, and protection under the United Nations Convention Against Torture ("CAT"). He premises his requests for such relief on the harm that he fears that he would be subjected to in Iraq at the hands of members of Iraq's military or civilian insurgents operating in that country. Al Amiri contends that he has reason to fear he would be subjected to that harm on account of his work as a paid contractor for the United States Army during the war in Iraq, as in that role he educated U.S. soldiers about Iraqi customs and practices as they prepared for their deployment. We vacate and remand the ruling of the Board of Immigration Appeals ("BIA") denying his claims for asylum and withholding of removal, but we deny his petition insofar as it challenges the BIA's ruling rejecting his CAT claim."
