AAO U Visa Victory: Texas Robbery a Qualifying Crime

"The evidence in the record establishes that the nature and elements of the criminal offense of which the petitioner was a victim, robbery, are substantially similar to felonious assault under section 101(a)(15)(U)(iii) of the Act.  Accordingly, the petitioner has established the requisite victimization under section 101(a)(15)(U)(i) of Act and we withdraw the director's contrary determination." - Matter of X-, Jan. 22, 2015.  [Hats off to David R. Walding, Executive Director of the Bernardo Kohler Center!]
