On June 16, 2008, an immigration judge granted asylum to a client our office represented after a merit hearing in the immigration court.
This case involves a young man from an Asian country. The only child of his family, he came to the US to seek asylum because of the persecution he experienced from his government. He is afraid that if he returns to his country, he will experience further persecution because of his religious practice and belief.
After entering the US without being inspected, this individual was arrested by the BICE, and then released with a bond set by an immigration court. Upon his release, he came to us and sought help of our office for changing the venue of his case, and for his asylum petition to the immigration court. In the trial, Attorney Stewart Lin thoroughly questioned our client to let him present in detail what he experienced back home, and why he fears to return home. After the trial, the presiding judge agreed that our client does have reasonable fear for future persecution and hence granted asylum to our client. As the counsel of Department of Homeland Security has waived appeal, the ruling of immigration judge has become final.
