(A) a claim for asylum under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA);
(B) a claim for withholding of removal under the INA;
(C) a claim for withholding or deferral of removal under the Convention Against Torture; or
(D) a motion to reopen or reconsider an order involving one of the claims listed above.
(2) Other. Any other class of cases that the court identifies as appropriate for the NAC.
