A Venezualan client was arrested at the port of entry. As he was classified as an arriving alien, he was required to complete his asylum case from inside the detention center. Our office aided his family in collecting numerous documents to support his fear of return based on the present political climate in Venezuela. We then aided him in preparing his own affidavit with several drafts until we felt it was satisfactory to present to the Immigration Judge. The judge, during the Merits hearing, complimented the extent of supporting evidence our office had collected in supporting his claim. Also, given that the client had prepared his testimony through several practice sessions with our attorneys, he was very well prepared for the Merits hearing, and was thereafter granted relief in the form of asylum.
