Holding that Petitioner was not a member of the proposed particular social groups of “Honduran women who are unable to leave their domestic relationship” and “Honduran women viewed as property by their domestic partners" because she ended her relationship with her former abuser by moving out of his home, which also indicated lack of immutability. The Court further ruled that Petitioner failed to show nexus between the abuse and her membership in these groups because her persecutor's motive was personal and he lacked knowledge of such groups and that country conditions did not show Honduran government was unable or unwilling to protect Petitioner, who did not seek help from the police.
