Another unpublished decision from the Board of Immigration Appeals confirmed that asylum can be won even if the conditions in the homeland improve. Blandon Law can read these decisions because our attorneys are members of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. When other attorneys win asylum cases, we know about it. That improves the chance of winning for our clients.
In this case, the foreign national was from Liberia. His entire family was murdered when he was 13 years old. Although the political situation in Liberia has changed, and the applicant no longer fears returning to his country, asylum was granted because of the SEVERITY of the past harm he suffered.
