Attorney General Rules That the BIA Must Examine Asylum Claims De Novo

Vacating the BIA’s decision concerning the asylum claims of a Salvadoran woman who had established persecution on account of her membership in a particular social group—“Salvadoran females”—the Attorney General ruled that in reviewing asylum claims, the BIA must examine de novo whether facts found by the immigration judge satisfy all statutory elements of asylum as a matter of law, and that the BIA should meaningfully review each element of an asylum claim before affirming or independently ordering a grant of asylum. Matter of A-C-A-A-, 28 I&N Dec. 84 (A.G. 2020)
