J-1 Physician Approved for Persecution Waiver


Our client, a citizen of Syria, entered the U.S. on a J-1 visa. His employer wanted to sponsor him for a green card, but they were prevented from doing so as he was subject to the 212(e) 2-year home residency requirement. Attorney Furqan filed an I-612 waiver on account of the fact that the Syrian government had targeted him because he was a Physician who managed a practice in Rebel controlled areas, and because he was a member of a non-profit group that documented how the Syrian government was attacking hospitals and physicians. USCIS approved the I-612, allowing him to file for permanent residency without having to serve 2 years in Syria where he feared for his life.
