Matthew Borowski has just won an asylum case for a Syrian refugee who feared forced recruitment by Bashar al-Assad's military forces, and persecution due to his pro-western political views. This individual's family home in Damascus had been destroyed in a bombing campaign several years ago, and he feared returning to the war-torn country. The news of our asylum win came just as the U.S. government sent airstrikes to several Syrian military sites. Immigration Judge Denise Hochul ruled in favor of our client's asylum claim, which was based on political opinion, religion, race, and membership in a particular social group of young, westernized Syrian men.
Borowski Immigration Law is thrilled that we were able to secure asylum and eventual U.S. permanent residency through the defensive asylum process at the Buffalo Immigration Court.
