Immigration : Asylum – Harassment – Removal

Where an immigrant from Indonesia presented evidence that he was harassed and intimidated because of his Christian faith, the incidents did not rise to the level of persecution and the denial of withholding of removal was also supported by evidence that the Indonesian government now promotes racial and ethnic tolerance, so the denial of asylum and withholding of removal is affirmed, and the immigrant also did not show that the board erred in denying him relief under the Convention Against Terror.

Petition denied.
