No. 07-499


    Daniel Girmai Negusie v. Michael B. Mukasey, Attorney General



    The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) prohibits the Secretary of Homeland Security and the Attorney General from granting asylum to, or withholding removal of, a refugee who has "ordered, incited, assisted, or otherwise participated in the persecution of any person on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion." INA section 208(b)(2)(A), 8 U.S.C. section 1158(b) (2)(A). The question presented is: Whether this "persecutor exception" prohibits granting asylum to, and withholding of removal of, a refugee who is compelled against his will by credible threats of death or torture to assist or participate in acts of persecution.
