Nbaye v. Attorney Gen. of the U.S., No. 10-4468 (3d Cir. 2011)Annotate this Case
Petitioner sought to enter the U.S. with a stolen French passport in 2005, but was intercepted. Numerous proceedings ensued arising from Department of Homeland Security removal proceedings against him. Petitioner sought asylum, withholding of removal, and relief under the Convention Against Torture, claiming to fear returning to Guinea because he believes he will be persecuted on account of his political opinion attributable to his membership in the Rally of Guinean People Party. The Board of Immigration Appeals rejected his arguments. The Third Circuit vacated for reconsideration, noting a change in power in Guinea. The court did not address the merits.
