CA9 on Somalia, Persecution, Firm Resettlement: Aden v. Wilkinson

Aden v. Wilkinson

"Abdi Ali Asis Aden petitions for review of the Board of Immigration Appeals’ (the “BIA” or “Board”) dismissal of his appeal of an Immigration Judge’s (“IJ”) denial of his applications for asylum and withholding of removal from Somalia. Aden challenges the Board’s determination that he firmly resettled in South Africa and did not experience persecution in Somalia. We have jurisdiction under 8 U.S.C. § 1252. We grant the petition for review and remand."
