not "visible enough" in the USA, said the court

The Third Circuit denied asylum to Mr. An, from China, who said he protested in front of his embassy here in the USA. He produced some photos, but it was not clear if he was in them. He was not "visible enough" said the court. Also, An did not write any articles, criticizing his country. An was not famous, conspicuous, or notorious.

Also, Mr. An was inconsistent. He said his government was angry at him because he allowed a refugee from North Korea to stay at his house. How long did the refugee stay? first, An said, "several days." Then, he said, "27 days." His friend wrote a letter, saying it was for "two or three days."
