This article reminded me of two asylum victories. The TIME writer explains the endemic harm to Indian women. In our cases, the male clients were members of a minority religion. They correctly feared their wives would be raped or killed if they were deported. Those victories prove the point: asylees can be from large, democratic nations.
If you know someone from India who fears returning, have them call (954) 385-0157 to discuss their options. There are deadlines to file an asylum application.
