Never give up on a right you have.

We just won approval of a green card for a client under a little-known program that has a yearly cap of only 50. And usually, the denial rate is so high that even most of the 50 available green cards are unused.
Section 13 is a 1957 law that allows former diplomats (and semi-diplomatic personnel) to apply for a green card if they can show compelling reasons why they're unable to return to the country they represented, and that their admission to the US would be in the national interest.
The legal standards are different from asylum, but many Sec. 13 applicants may also qualify for asylum. We filed asylum for him as well, of course, given the high denial rate of Sec. 13. I told him he shouldn't take chances on a law that only helps about 5-6 people per year.
This client made an indelible impression on me. I watched as the news that he could never go home hit him - the moment he realized he was a refugee.

I'm glad that I was unsuccessful in talking him out of Section 13, because today he's a permanent resident.
Never give up on a right you have. Throw yourself into the fight all the way.
