A mother and daughter from Venezuela would like assistance with an asylum claim based on political opinion. The applicant and her husband owned a bakery in Venezuela and a political group wanted them to support them by initially only serving Chavista supporters then providing free food to them. They declined to do either and were persecuted as a result of their refusal to help. They endured threats and physical abuse from the political leaders in the community and decided they had to leave the country to be safe. Everyone had tourist visas expect the youngest child, the daughter. The father and son were able to fly into the US with their tourist visa. Thus, they are not in removal proceedings and have a pending application for TPS. Because the youngest child did not have a visa, mom entered with that child at the border via Mexico. They were both placed in proceedings. They have filed for TPS. It is very likely that the judge will grant another continuance at their next hearing to determine the outcome of the TPS application. This case is unique because the mom and daughter should still file the asylum application because TPS isn’t a permanent form of relief. The two need an attorney to attend the court hearing on 10/28 and advise the court of the pending TPS application and assist in the asylum application. Next hearing(s): October 28, 2021.
