Case Summary

The IJ granted CAT to a Mexican male in remanded reinstatement proceedings. The man had witnessed a double murder by the Zetas cartel in Mexico and was subsequently beaten and threatened with death. According to the attorney, the IJ denied withholding of removal under 241(b)(3) because the BIA had rejected the PSG "witness to Zetas cartel homicide in Mexico" and related articulations, and granted on CAT instead. DHS did not appeal.
