Family Wins Asylum, Misses Children

(New York, NY – March 28, 2014) William Low, Esq., attorney-in-charge of the Margaret W. Wong & Associates, Co., LPA, New York office and seasoned immigration attorney, told his clients on Tuesday, March 25th, the long-awaited news that after five years of fleeing persecution and suffering detention by US immigration authorities, they were legal in the US.
“But what of our children?” the wife immediately asked.
In August 2010, the man and his wife, who were born Buddhist, but lived as atheists in their Asian home country, were denied a license to sell their produce, because of their race and being non-Muslim. Fearing their lives were in danger, the couple arranged for their children to remain with relatives, and the two began a perilous journey.
Crossing oceans and deserts they reached the US. Once in the US, they were detained and jailed by the Department of Homeland Security’s Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE). And being jailed in the US was the best thing that ever happened to them.
Inside immigration detention, separately, the husband in the men’s section, and the wife in the women’s section, they were introduced to Christianity.
“In the summer of 2010, after leaving detention in Texas,” William Low said, “these two began attending church regularly, were soon baptized, and were actively engaged in the Christian faith that included spreading the gospel and other volunteer work at the church. But their children never left their minds. They soon hired our firm to help move their cases from Texas to New York and with their asylum cases.”
“Of course, almost daily, they asked us about the children. When could they see them? When could they bring them to the US? This separation from their children has been very difficult on them – they can think only of their children.”
William Low and the firm encountered challenge after challenge. But working closely with the couple, they succeeded in having the couple’s two cases consolidated, and finally won the case.
“So, naturally,” said William Low, “as soon as we gave them the news Tuesday, they begged us to bring their children to the US. We’ve immediately refocused on getting the children as soon as possible, preparing the I-730 petitions. We’re confident it won’t be much longer.”
