Before: Jacobs, Ch.J., Kearse, Straub, C.JJ. Decided: Oct. 14, 2009 Yan Yan Lin, a native and citizen of China, petitions for review of a final order of the Board of Immigration Appeals affirming the decision of an Immigration Judge which denied her application for asylum, withholding of removal, and withholding under the Convention Against Torture. The petition was denied primarily on the ground that Lin “assisted or participated” in the persecution of others by serving as a nurse in the maternity ward of a hospital which performed forced abortions and that she was therefore subject to the statutory “persecutor bar” of the Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. §§1101(a)(42), 1158(b)(2)(A)(i), 1231(b)(3)(B)(i). The petition is granted in part, denied in part, and remanded.
