AI Justice Succeeds in Novel Asylum Case

AI Justice successfully argued that asylum should be granted to the brother of a victim of a sex trafficking ring. After the sister courageously reported the trafficking to the authorities, resulting in the traffickers’ convictions, other members of the ring began to threaten the victim’s brother. As a result, he fled to the US. AI Justice filed an asylum petition on his behalf arguing that he should be granted asylum due to the danger he faced based on his family membership to the trafficking victim.
