On July 1, 2008, an immigration judge in Houston granted asylum to another client our office represented after a merit hearing in the immigration court.
This case involves a client who converted to Christian religion. Previously she was represented by an another attorney at the asylum office. The asylum request was denied by the asylum office and her case was referred to the immigration court for removal proceeding. She then retained attorney of Lin & Valdez to represent her.
At the trial for the merit hearing, witnesses from the church were called to prove that our client has indeed converted to Christianity. Our attorney also proved that she was in another religion while she was in her country and her country did not tolerate the conversion to Christianity. As such, the fear of future persecution was established. The presiding judge was convinced of the merits and then granted the asylum petition. As the counsel of the Department of Homeland Security has waived appeal, the ruling of immigration judge has become final.
