My brother asked for assylum, he was detained by the Police

Esta respuesta ha recibido una valoración:

My brother asked for assylum, he was detained by the Police Inmigration and he ask assylum inmediately. Right now he is detained in Delaney Hall Detention Center in New Jersey and I would like to know of a lawyer who can take his case. he was asked by the deportation officer to send documents to support his release and I am sending next week, but he will need an attorney to defend him. The last letter he received says that an attorney or OTHER PERSON can submit the information requested, but I want to find an attorney, since he will need it to prepare his case. He inmigrates to the USA due to problems with gangs and extortion, but he is a person with criminal record in Honduras and we have prove of all the problems he was having during being in Honduras.

Hello and thank you for using our service. My name isXXXXX and I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help you. Believe me that I will try my best to give you a solution if one exists, but sometimes the law does not have a good one.

What is the basis of his persecution? Who is after him in Honduras and why? When and where was your brother caught by immigration?
Cliente: escribió hace 4 años.

He was working with a company which sold cards for charging cellulars. All began when he went to sell to a dangerous neighborhood and in one ocassion he was asked for money, he gave them money just one time, but then he refuses to continue selling at this neighborhood and we do not know how they know about all of my brother. First, his motorcycle was theft, he was being persecuted all the time. A complaint was put at the Human Rights but the persecution continues, they know everything about my brother. One day he was hit very hard and was hospitalized 6 days. Since that day his life is in danger. We suppose are gangs after him asking for money, we consider is an extorsion. He was caught on August of this year.


Unfortunately, that doesn't sound like persecution to me. That sounds like a local police problem even though the police doesn't do anything or is ineffective. I just want you to understand because often people will spend thousands of dollars on attorneys and then when the attorney doesn't do anything, "Mi abogado no servia para nada. No izo nada!" The problem is that often nothing can be done except buy time to stay longer in the U.S. and hope for some reform. So let me explain the situation. To win an Asylum, one must prove that they are being persecuted or have a well-founded fear of persecution if returned to their home country and that the persecution is on the count of their race, religion,nationality, social group or political opinion. At best, XXXXX XXXXX thing he could claim is perhaps social group, that being people that are extored, but honestly, that group is too broad, not well-defined and that is the category that most often loses. I just want you to understand what you are getting into when you hire an attorney and pay them thousands of dollars. Don't expect too much. Take a look at the statistics:


In 2012, from Honduras, 1275 applications for Asylum were submitted and only 93 were approved. So now you understand how difficult it is. Here is another link with more information:
