The law provides for asylum and/or withholding of removal for an alien if the individual can prove he or she was persecuted or feared persecution in his or her home country based on his or her religion, political opinion, nationality, race or membership in a particular social group. An Individual who fears torture may also qualify for relief. ATTORNEY Ricardo Skerrett provides excellent legal representation in asylum cases whether appearing before a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) examiner or in U.S. Immigration Court.
