Asylum Victory: Gang-Related Violence

Paul S. Haar writes: "I thought that you and my colleagues would appreciate the recent (redacted) decision of Immigration Judge John Milo Bryant of the U.S. Immigration Court at Arlington, Virginia in which he applied the recent Fourth Circuit case of Crespin-Valladares in holding that family members of an individual who was the subject of gang-related violence constitute a protected social group meriting a grant of asylum for our client.  A hard-fought case and well-deserved victory."

  1. Congratulations to Mr. Haar and his client! This is wonderful.

    As a retired US Border Patrol/INS/ICE Agent, I am also in favor of the designation of those Mexican citizens persecuted by the failed US backed Mexican drug war as a protected social group meriting a grant of asylum.
