Trafficking Victim Granted T Status

 
Client: Adult Female Non-U.S. Citizen in Removal Proceeding
Client’s Country of Origin: El Salvador
Case Type: Trafficking Victim Status
Date of Application: October 17, 2014
Date of Approval: March 17, 2015

Background:
Our client was in a removal proceeding. We first helped her reopen her denied case and stay the removal proceeding. Afterwards, we replied to immigration authority a request for evidence, days before we secured her T status.

Challenge:
We receive limited evidence. Nevertheless, we still made the best arguments based on the strength of our proof.

Action:
We helped our client prove that she met all the legal criteria:

  1. She was, by legal definition, a victim of trafficking.
  2. She was in the United States, American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, or at a port of entry due to trafficking.
  3. She complied with any reasonable request from a law enforcement agency for assistance in the investigation or prosecution of human trafficking (or under the age of 18 unable to cooperate due to physical or psychological trauma).
  4. She demonstrated that she would suffer extreme hardship involving unusual and severe harm if she were removed from the United States.
  5. She is admissible to the United States.

Result:
Nine days after we replied the request for evidence (five months after the initial application), our client was granted Trafficking Victim Status.
