Hussain v. Rosen

 An immigration judge provided a pro se asylum-seeker with due process by providing details about the structure of the hearing and the availability of counsel, and asking numerous questions through which the asylum-seeker had ample opportunity to develop his testimony; judges do not need to go beyond their impartial role as independent fact-finders and essentially act as advocates for pro se asylum applicants. The evidence did not compel the finding of past persecution where an asylum-seeker did not testify to any individualized physical attacks or threats, and he failed to show sufficient economic or psychological harm. An asylum-seeker failed to establish that the Pakistani government was unable to control the Taliban, as the standard is not that the government can prevent all risk of harm.
