In re A. E.

Status: Closed

Outcome: Victory

Location: Honduras

Jurisdiction + Case Number: San Francisco Asylum Office

A.E. is a gay man from Honduras who immigrated to the US in 2006. He has spent over 10 years of overcoming hardship and recovering from past trauma, including being targeted by violence and death threats in Honduras because of his sexual orientation.

A.E. is now thriving and has a wonderful husband who was included in his asylum petition. With much preparation work from NCLR and a lot of emotional investment from A.E. and his husband, they were able to present their case at the asylum office, and were granted asylum in January 2020.
