Young Afghan Girl Seeks Asylum due to Ethnicity, Anti-Taliban Political Opinion, and More

Child 344a needs an attorney to help her file for asylum affirmatively before USCIS.

Posted June 8, 2022

Work & Deliverables

Child 344a:
Relief: Affirmative Asylum
Language: Dari
Immigration Hearings: None
Deadlines: Asylum must be filed before September 12, 2022.

Child 344a fled Afghanistan in 2021, after the Taliban took over the country. Child 344a is Hazara and practices Shi'a Islam, and she fears that if she is forced to return to Afghanistan, the Taliban will persecute her because of her ethnicity and religion. Child 344a's brother was killed in combat in July 2021, fighting against the Taliban. She also fears that the Taliban will harm her because of her brother's service in the Afghan forces. Child 344a needs an attorney to help her file for asylum affirmatively before USCIS before her one-year deadline in September.
