  • The five grounds (race, religion, nationality, social group membership, and political opinion)
  • Withholding of removal protection and protection under the Convention Against Torture
  • Claims based on childhood status and gender-based persecution
  • When non-state actors can be considered agents of persecution
  • Asylum eligibility for those fleeing gang violence in their home countries
