When Oscar was a boy in Honduras, his parents operated a small computer repair shop and restaurant. The infamous MS-13 Gang ran rampant in the area, and they repeatedly extorted “protection” money from Oscar’s parents. What they paid was never enough. One day, the gang killed Oscar’s father. A few months later, Oscar and his mother watched in horror as gang members gunned down Oscar’s older brother. Not wanting his mother to lose another child, Oscar fled alone to the U.S.
His AI Justice attorney met him in a Miami immigration shelter and worked to have Oscar granted asylum. His adjustment application was approved and he is now a lawful permanent resident of the US. Now, safe for the first time in his life, Oscar dreams of one day working with computers, like his father.
