Customer reply replied 2 years ago

Immigration Lawyer: Guillermo J. Senmartin, Esq., Immigration Lawyer replied 2 years ago
Then it seems that he is safe in Ethiopia, is he not? It seems Ethiopia has granted him Asylum through the UN so that he can stay in Ethiopia and not have to go back to Somalia. Does that sound about right?

cant aford a phone call I just want to know will the united states help him to come to the usa and what is he going to do all he has is the asylum refugee card..
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
he said the un there will not help him
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
he has had no food for a week and no place to stay
Immigration Lawyer: Guillermo J. Senmartin, Esq., Immigration Lawyer replied 2 years ago
Why would the U.S. help him if he is safe from persecution in Ethiopia? It sounds to me like this is a situation no longer of risk of persecution, but just that he is looking for better economic opportunities. I mean I don't want to be difficult and I want to help, but that's what it looks like to me or am I mistaken?

im not satisfied with your answers
Immigration Lawyer: Guillermo J. Senmartin, Esq., Immigration Lawyer replied 2 years ago
If he is truly in danger of persecution in Ethiopia and he can prove it, he can apply for Refugee status. Here is a link: http://www.uscis.gov/humanitarian/refugees-asylum/refugees And here is another: http://www.uscis.gov/humanitarian/refugees-asylum/refugees/questions-answers-refugees He may or may not be resettled in the U.S., but he should at least be resettled to a place where he can worship in peace. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions and there is no additional charge. Also, should you need to chat on the phone, private email or need help reviewing documentation, I am happy to do so for a small additional cost.

Immigration Lawyer: Guillermo J. Senmartin, Esq., Immigration Lawyer replied 2 years ago
Excuse me, but you are not charged per question, per response, nor per answer. So it costs you nothing at this point. Also, would you prefer that I not give you the truth and that you give him incorrect information and that he falls victim to persons that take advantage of desperate people?

i don't want that to happen but my hands are tied im in the usa..
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
that is why i contacted you... but you said he was in a safe place...i wish you could talk to him
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
his face book page is listed as achrist issaviour
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
can you contact him
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
and tell him your advice....
Immigration Lawyer: Guillermo J. Senmartin, Esq., Immigration Lawyer replied 2 years ago
Contacting him directly is what I could have done for the phone call service, but you rejected that which is fine. I understand your frustration, but you shouldn't blame me for what the law states/allows. I gave you the information that you asked for. That there is no easy solution is not my fault. He needs to approach the U.N. or the U.S. Embassy in Ethiopia and ask for Refugee status. He would have to prove that he is not safe in Ethiopia either. I wish I had an easier solution for you but at least he now knows what he would need to do. If he is a member of a specific religious organization for at least 2 years outside of the U.S, he may be able to get a similar religious organization in the U.S. to sponsor him for an R-1 visa. That may be another option. Here is a link: http://www.uscis.gov/working-united-states/temporary-workers/r-1-temporary-religious-workers/r-1-temporary-nonimmigrant-religious-workers Let me know if you need anything else, but please do not forget to rate me positively. Thank you!

he said things that i was afraid that he might say now i have to tell him the bad news.. he believes i made a promse to get him out i only said i would try... the lawyer im not blaming its just so heart breaking and i am stuck with a answer to achrist issaviour that will devastate him.... the lawyer did his best . but i am heart broken and he will be also im going to try and send him the link so he can read it....
Immigration Lawyer: Guillermo J. Senmartin, Esq., Immigration Lawyer replied 2 years ago
I understand, but like I said, it may be possible for him to get an R-1 religious worker visa to come to the U.S. if refugee status is not granted. Let me know if you need anything else, but please do not forget to rate me positively. As I do not receive a salary, it is the only way that I get credit for my service to you. You are NOT charged again and we do NOT finish just because it says, "Rate to finish" or something like that. I will not abandon you after you rate me positively if you have additional questions. Thank you for your understanding!
