Grant of Asylum Immigration Relief for Christian Syrian

On July 22, 2014, a Syrian national who had fled his home country seeking protection from persecution was granted asylum immigration relief by the Immigration Court in Orlando, Florida.

Under current U.S. immigration laws, an individual seeking asylum must demonstrate that he or she has suffered past-persecution or has a well-founded fear of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion.

Attorney Silvia Manzanero from David F. Vedder, P.A., represented the Syrian national before the Immigration Court, presented a compelling and thoroughly documented case, and successfully demonstrated that her client had a well-founded fear of being persecuted on account of his Christian religious faith.

As an asylum grantee, Manzanero’s client will be able to apply for lawful permanent residence in one year.
