Rodriguez-Ramirez v. Garland

 The Board of Immigration Appeals is permitted to afford substantial weight to inconsistencies that bore directly on an asylum-seeker’s claim of persecution; although omissions are less probative of credibility than inconsistencies created by direct contradictions in evidence and testimony, when the omission was concerning events and circumstances that the alien experienced directly, on direct examination, about the specific event that allegedly prompted him to flee, an immigration judge could afford substantial weight to the discrepancies. An IJ can rely on an alien’s evasive and unresponsive demeanor while testifying after providing examples of his evasiveness.
