The Board of Immigration Appeals has determined that when an applicant for asylum fabricates his entry date, thus making it appear that he has met the requirement for filing asylum within one year of entry, an Immigration Judge can properly find that he filed a frivolous asylum application. The fabricated entry date is material to the asylum claim, insomuch as the filing deadline is a statutory requirement for eligibility. It does not matter that, in reality, the asylum application is time barred because no exception to the one-year filing deadline exists. The application can still be deemed frivolous.
