- Flores v. Garland, 3 F.4th 615 (4th Cir. 2021) - En banc decision finding that when considering the persecution and unable and unwilling prongs of the asylum analysis, the adjudicator must take into consideration the applicant's age at the time of the events if they were a minor and judge those standards from the perspective of child. A monumental decision that will directly affect and benefit many asylum seekers who suffered harm as a child.
