CASE ENTRY

S.E.R.L. v. Attorney General

Honduran asylum seekers fear domestic violence at home. BIA: Which does not make them part of a “particular social group,” as the statute requires, so they aren’t eligible. Third Circuit: We’ve rejected the BIA’s interpretation of what constitutes a particular social group in the past, but this is fine. Chevron deference for the BIA, and deportation for the women.
