Dallas Immigration Judge May Make Precedent Setting Ruling
Dallas based US Immigration Judge D. Anthony Rogers will have to decide whether a Mexican Cartel victim will find a safe haven in the United States. Jose Alarcon, a former Juarez cop, will have his case heard early next year. Historically, Immigration judges have sent Mexican asylum seekers back to Mexico. The judges are ruling that the asylum law does not protect foreign victims of crimes that have no political motives. Less frequently, some judges have granted asylum petitions. Todd Bensman, an investigative reporter based in San Antonio writes a riveting article on the story of Jose Alarcon.
