Tairou v. Whitaker (P)

The Board of Immigration Appeals erred in finding that the petitioner was not subjected to past persecution and that he lacked a well-founded fear of persecution were he to return to Benin. A threat of death constitutes persecution. Because the petitioner experienced multiple death threats in Benin, he established that he was subjected to past persecution.

Petition granted; remanded.

Tairou v. Whitaker (P), No. 17-1404, Nov. 30, 2018. 4th Cir. (Gregory) from BIA.
