SCOTUSblog Petition of the Day: Velasquez-Otero v. Holder

The SCOTUSblog Petition of the Day is Velasquez-Otero v. Holder.  The question presented is whether the Board of Immigration Appeals’ unexplained addition of the social visibility requirement for asylum -- that those seeking asylum based on “membership in a particular social group” prove that their claimed groups are socially visible -- under 8 U.S.C. § 1101(a)(42)(A) is arbitrary or capricious under the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. § 706(2)(A), or unreasonable under Chevron U.S.A. Inc. v. Natural Res. Def. Council.
