Joe Alien appears before an immigration judge while detained in ICE custody. He does not dispute the charges contained in the Notice to Appear, but wants to apply for relief from removal. He submits a request and application for Cancellation of Removal for nonpermanent residents and Asylum.
In his asylum application, he claims he is afraid to return to Mexico because of his Uncle who has threatened to kill him in the past.
Is Joe Alien statutorily eligible for Cancellation of Removal? Asylum? Does Joe meet all the requirements to be eligible for these forms of relief?
