Asylum Protection Granted for Domestic Violence Victim

                This week, we are pleased to announce that we successfully obtained asylum protection for a client who was the victim of severe domestic abuse in her home country.  If she had returned to her native country, she would have been killed on sight by either her husband or her own family members. Several countries throughout the world still allow these “honor” killings- murder to redeem the honor of the families involved. These killings are allowed by their governments, thus, deportees returning to their homelands have no official form of protection.  

Client's Deportation Proceedings Terminated Under Prosecutorial Discretion

            It always feels great to see the law implemented the way it should be. At the beginning of the summer, Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director John Morton issued a memo to all related government officials about expanding the use of prosecutorial discretion.
