    US asylum for Egyptian Coptic Christians. Conditions in Egypt right now have clearly undergone a material change. Although it is not as simple as simply stating “I’m a Copt and I want asylum”, it is also true that right now USCIS is favorably disposed towards these claims. Indeed, some of you are not even aware of how solid your claim for asylum really is. This is because sometimes the facts that are important to clients in their every-day lives are different than those which USCIS considers most critical. For example, many of you have asked if the fact that you cannot document past persecution will doom your case. In other words, does the mere absence of any past persecution mean that you will not qualify for asylum now. The answer to that question is NO. After all, an asylum claim is based upon a well founded fear of “future persecution“. So while evidence of persecution in the past may be “helpful” it is not dispositive. And having a skillful lawyer who knows the best way to present the facts of your case, as well as testimony from the most credible expert possible can help convince an immigration officer of the likelihood that you will be persecuted for being Christian if you are forced to return to Egypt.

    SYRIA

    If you are from Syria and either currently have "Temporary Protected Status" (TPS) or have been residing continuously in the U.S. since June 17, 2013, you may be eligible for TPS until 2015. It's important to notice that this creates not only renewal opportunities, but a new application opportunity for Syrians who did not obtain TPS in the past. It also applies to persons without nationality who last habitually resided in Syria.

    TPS status allows noncitizens whose countries have become dangerous, perhaps due to natural disaster or civil strife, to remain in the United States for limited time periods as authorized by the U.S. government. In this case, the U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security determined that conditions in Syria have deteriorated since the original 2012 TPS designation, and that because the country is now engaged ongoing armed conflict, nationals returning to Syria could face a serious threat to their personal safety.

    The TPS designation for eligible nationals of Syria has been extended for another 18 months, beginning on October 1, 2013 and ending on March 31, 2015.

    First-time applicants may apply between June 17, 2013 and December 16, 2013. You will need to include documentation of your residence in the U.S. since June 17, 2013.
