Political Asylum Green Cards Revoked

China Press, News Report, Posted: Mar 14, 2009

NEW YORK Many Chinese who got their U.S. permanent residency for political asylum lost their green cards recently when they came back to the United States from China, the China Press reports. Most of them are in their 30s or 40s. Immigration attorney Lihong Quan said undocumented immigrants from mainland China have cited many reasons to apply for political asylum, like the one-child policy, religious persecution or being human rights activists. No matter what the reason, the U.S. government issued green cards to them based on the fact that they would face danger if they went back to China. But because they went back to China and came back safely, the government argues that the reason they were granted political asylum no longer exists.
