TOMAS-RAMOS v. GARLAND

Holding that an IJ’s decision upholding an adverse reasonable fear finding is subject to substantial evidence review and that the record compelled the conclusion that Petitioner suffered persecution on account of the protected ground of family membership. The Court also ruled that ability to relocate is a proper consideration in reasonable fear interviews but is only one of several non-exhaustive factors to consider for CAT relief. The Court declined to reach Petitioner's claim alleging denial of his right to counsel.
