In this case, the immigration judge chose to deny the asylum application of Attorney Yekrangi’s client based on inconsistencies in the findings. However, under review by the appellate court, Ashkan Yekrangi advocated on behalf of his client to a three panel judge to highlight that, in fact, there were no inconsistencies in his clients case and findings of the immigration judge and Board of Immigration Appeals was incorrect.
Decisions in Asylum Cases
In many asylum cases, petitioners apply for protection in the United States because of untenable circumstances in their country of origin. Many asylum seekers face injustice in their home countries and are subject to harm based on their political views, gender, social class, ethnicity or religion.
For Attorney Yekrangi’s clients, they suffered attacks based on prejudice against their sexuality. The original judgment denied the client’s appeal based on minutiae in the case. Unfortunately, small details can make a significant difference in an asylum case and the immigration court may deny a petition because of inconsistencies.
When this happens, it is crucial that the petitioner’s attorney clearly and succinctly define the importance of the case and defend their client’s grounds for asylum. Attorney Yekrangi not only clearly explained the situation and provided a comprehensive view of the case.
