The Second Circuit has deferred to the Board of Immigration Appeals' decision in Matter of L-A-C-, finding that the REAL ID Act does not require the IJ to identify the specific evidence necessary to meet the applicant's burden of proof and to provide an automatic continuance for the applicant to obtain that evidence prior to rendering a decision on the application.  In so doing, the Court rejected the Ninth Circuit's decision in Ren v. Holder.
