Asylum Granted for ALRP Client


ALRP is pleased to recognize new Panel attorney Christine Lin’s success in obtaining political asylum for an ALRP client. The client fled El Salvador after being persecuted by local gangs for being gay. He was gang-raped and contracted HIV. Christine generously agreed to help him prepare his immigration petition in November 2011. In February 2012, Christine informed ALRP that her client was granted asylum. With political asylum, the client can now legally remain in the U.S., free from the risk of persecution and rape. ALRP is incredibly grateful for Christine’s dedication to serving our HIV+, low-income clients.
