Suppose a client walked into my office and told me that police officers in his country had choked a man to death over a petty crime. Suppose he said police fatally shot another man in the back as he ran away. That they arrested a woman during a traffic stop and placed her in jail, where she died three days later. That a 12-year-old boy in his country was shot and killed by the police as he played in the park.
Suppose he told me that all of those victims were from the same ethnic community a community whose members fear being harmed, tortured or killed by police or prison guards. And that this is true in cities and towns across his nation. At that point, as an immigration lawyer, Id tell him he had a strong claim for asylum protection under U.S. law.
What if, next, he told me he was from America? Black people in the United States face such racial violence that they could qualify as refugees.
Over the past decade, Ive represented and advised hundreds of noncitizens facing deportation. Many feared persecution in their home countries and sought protection in the United States....

“Suppose he said police fatally shot another man in the back as he ran away. “
Suppose any statements made are absolute and easily provable lies
Conservative Americans could qualify...
Since obviously they are so oppressed here, if the EU will accept them....
Suppose once this once great republic goes full Venesuela, that we could use WaPo for Charmin.
Sure as soon as Christians fine exorbitant amounts of money for refusing to bake gay wedding cakes can get religious asylum...
Perhaps point out the racial crime statistics.
OK. Send the refugees to Liberia.
OH. OOPS. White people get shot by cops too??? You mean it happens to white people more than black people???
Everyday I read some new insanityfrom California that tops the last insanity.
It’s like the only logical explanation could be cheap homemade LSD in the water supply.
Sure. Bill him $12K and tell him you can get him full citizenship (yes, he’s already a citizen). He’ll be able to vote, own a business and property, and so on. He’ll have the same freedom to make a life for himself as anyone else here... It’s up to him to work hard and make it happen.
I think he’s talking about that guy in the park, not St. Michael Brown.
Given the amount of violent crime they are responsible for, they could qualify as domestic terrorists.
Post of the night!! Bravo!
It was either in Liberia or somewhere over there where people are still eating human flesh in restaurants. I have a feeling that plump, well formed American Africans will not last long there.

There was once a back to Africa move to for those that wanted to leave. Few went for it.
No. Next question!
