J-1 Persecution and Hardship Waiver Approved for Palestinian Refugee


Our client was a Palestinian refugee residing in Syria, and as a Palestinian national, she was a vulnerable target for government discrimination if she were to return to Syria. Since her husband was an asylee from Syria, he could not join her in Syria since he was also a target of the Syrian government. The attorneys at Azhar & Azhar Law Firm argued that her fear of governmental persecution, combined with the exceptional hardship that her family in the US would face should she be forced to depart the US, necessitated the approval of the J-1 waiver application. The DOS approved the DS-3035 and USCIS subsequently approved the I-612.
