SALGADO-SOSA v. SESSIONS

Ruling that (1) for withholding of removal, Petitioner’s family relationship was a central reason for Petitioner's persecution, which resulted from Petitioner's stepfather’s actions to protect family from gang, (2) remand was required to consider whether, pursuant to Zambrano v. Sessions, 878 F.3d 84 (4th Cir. 2017), Petitioner demonstrated changed circumstances in the form of the intensification of a preexisting threat of persecution to excuse the untimeliness of his asylum application, and (3) substantial evidence supported the agency's denial of CAT relief.
