Failed Recall of Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro May Mean More Asylum Requests

Last week, an attempt to remove authoritarian Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro failed. Five lower courts approved injunctions to suspend the recall, ending the best chance for a peaceful resolution to the country’s political turmoil.

We expect that this news will prompt many citizens of Venezuela to apply for U.S. asylum and residency to escape the difficult conditions in their homeland. Blandon Law is an expert in obtaining asylum-based immigration benefits for Venezuelans. In fact, national hero Marco Coello is a client.

Our office is located in Weston, Florida - the heart of South Florida – so we are accessible to Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties. Please call us at 954-385-0157 for immigration assistance.

Court Blocks Indiana’s Attempt to Withhold Funds to Refugee Resettlement Agency

A federal appeals court panel Monday blocked Indiana Governor (and Republican vice presidential candidate) Mike Pence's attempt to keep Syrian refugees out of Indiana.
The court affirmed the grant of a preliminary injunction against the state of Indiana’s attempt to withhold funds to a private agency that assists in the resettlement of refugees, including those from Syria. (Exodus Refugee Immigration, Inc. v. Pence, 10/3/16).
This ruling is the latest in a series of federal court decisions that have rejected similar attempts by other states to avoid Syrian refugee resettlement.

Building a Powerful Force of Refugee and Asylum Advocates

According to UNHCR’s 2015 Global Trends Report, one out of every 122 humans is now either a refugee, internally displaced, or seeking asylum due to wars, conflict, and persecution. In 2014 alone, 13.9 million people became newly displaced – four times the number of the previous year.

It is essential for legal practitioners to become well-versed in the laws, regulations, and policies impacting today’s asylum-seekers and to continue to pursue novel legal arguments and creative solutions. You can learn more at the upcoming AILA Advanced Business and Removals Conference being held in New York on October 10.
