Huge 4th Circuit Victory on Gang based persecution based on family as particular social group


In a refreshing decision, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals remanded an MS-13 El Salvador gang case back to the Board of Immigration Appeals after determining that the respondent did fit within a particular social group for his kinship (family) ties to his uncle who testified against the criminal gang MS-13.  Both the uncle and the respondent received threats in El Salvador before fleeing to the United States seeking protection.
