Filing for Asylum Protection from New York City (Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, Bronx, Manhattan)

I wrote about this recently but I did want to add to this blog due to the heavy talk about Immigration Reform. You may have heard many rumors regarding President Trump’s immigration plans. You may have heard that he plans to get rid of “Chain Immigration”. I’m not sure if it is exactly clear what he means by this. One thing that hasnt yet been addressed by him in detail is the asylum application process. I have many clients filing for asylum from various countries such, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Ukraine, and various African countries such as Nigeria. These individuals fear returning to their home countries due to past or future persecution. Often times clients will ask me how they could prove these claims. I tell them their sworn credible testimony (at times) can be enough proof. However, ordinarily other evidence is available that they may not be educated about. That is way, clients should seek the advice of an experienced Immigration Asylum Lawyer from New York City (Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, Bronx, Manhattan) particularly if they live within the jurisdiction.
