Our client was denied by the Immigration Judge on a cancellation of removal case. During testimony, her father testified that he fears for our client’s life because he was involved in drug cases in Colombia and the United States and that if his daughter is returned to Colombia she will be killed. During the hearing, the Immigration Judge refused to allow our client the opportunity to apply for political asylum based on her father’s testimony and he ordered her removed from the United States.
We appealed the case to the Board of Immigration Appeals and they agreed with our position and remanded the case back to the Immigration Judge to allow our client to apply for political asylum.
Case remanded back to Immigration Judge.
