The Board of Immigration Appeals issued a decision, Matter of Andrade Jaso & Carbajal Ayala, 27 I&N Dec. 557 (BIA 2019), which will prevent some noncitizens in removal proceedings from pursuing lawful permanent residence through non-LPR cancellation of removal. The decision finds that filing for asylum in a manner that is an “abuse” of the asylum system for the purpose of being placed in removal proceedings is sufficient reason for the immigration judge to grant the Department of Homeland Security’s motion to terminate proceedings.

مريم * (اسم مستعار) *  هي أم لطفلين ، ولدت ونشأت في الشرق الأوسط. الثلاثة جميعهم من الناجين من العنف المنزلي. لقد تركوا وطنهم بدافع مخاوف تتعلق بالسلامة ، حيث لم يكن لدى الحكومة نظام مناسب لتوفير الحماية. حصلت مريم وأطفالها على حق اللجوء منذ عدة سنوات وأصبحوا مؤخراً مقيمين بصفة دائمة. CLINIC قررت تسليط الضوء على قصتها بمناسبة عيد الأم 2019 ، في محاولة للاحتفال بالأمهات اللائي يقفن بجانب أسرهن ويطلبن حياة خالية من العنصرية والعنف القائم على النوع الاجتماعي.
