John Doe v. Alberto Gonzales

John Doe, a gay man from Egypt, applied for asylum based on anti-gay persecution he suffered in Egypt, where gay men are frequently arrested and subjected to brutal physical mistreatment for private, non-commercial, consensual adult sexual conduct. The Immigration Judge and Board of Immigration Appeals denied his application. NCLR and the International Gay & Lesbian Human Rights Commission filed an amicus brief in support of Doe’s eligibility for withholding of removal and relief from removal under the United Nations Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman, or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.
