CA6 Finds IJ Has Authority to Determine Frivolousness of a Time-Barred Asylum Application
The American Immigration Lawyers Association has reported that the United States Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit has ruled that Immigration Judges maintain the authority to make a finding that an application for asylum in frivolous even where the application for asylum is time-barred because it was not filed within one-year of the applicant's last arrival to the United States. See Ghazali v. Holder, 10/29/09. AILA Doc. No. 09102961.
