Assad Hafeez, Esq. speaks regarding Political Asylum. He provides Immigration Services in Sacramento, California. Practicing Immigration Law, he handles political asylum cases for those who have been targeted for their political activity. When someone is targeted for their membership in a political party, it can qualify under U.S. immigration law as “political persecution”. One must demonstrate that they have been targeted or persecuted “on account of” their political membership, political activity, or for their political beliefs. This is only a short summary of the general concepts. A skilled immigration practitioner can check your records or circumstances to see if you qualify for a political persecution argument or to see if there is a viable argument for political asylum.
Some of Assad’s clients have been able to advance without some of the above requirements under what is called “imputed” status or “imputed” beliefs. Assad can review your record or facts to see if you qualify under such a theory, even if you lack membership in a political party. There are many ways to argue asylum and the same goes for this area of asylum law.
