This brief argues for the reversal of a previous decision by the Board of Immigration to not grant a Palestinian man asylum. Due to substantial evidence that the plaintiff would face significant persecution and harassment on the basis of his sexual orientation if forced to return to his country of origin, the plaintiff is entitled to asylum under U.S. immigration law.
