The Board of Immigration Appeals in the Matter of A-G-G-, 25 I&N Dec. 486 (BIA 2011), once again modified the resettlement bar to asylum applications from previously being a discretionary bar to a permanent bar, if the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) provides sufficient evidence that the Respondent has in fact made a firm resettlement in another country. However, the inquiry is not as simple as it sounds and there are many ways to overcome the resettlement bar. The purpose of this blog is to give a basic overview of the current law relating to this issue. If you find yourself in such a situation ha...
