Benis Ntang is from Cameroon, a country she loves dearly, but had to flee in order to stay alive. Benis was recently granted asylum with the help of her DMRS attorney Marysol Castro.
Since arriving in the U.S., Benis met her fiancé, got engaged, and had a baby. She enrolle din school and is on the path to become a nurse. All of this happened in El Paso while Benis was waiting for her asylum case to be decided.
Benis said she was prepared to leave her family behind if her asylum claim was denied and she was forced to return to Cameroon.
“Asylum granted.” Those were the words by an immigration judge that dropped Benis to her knees in the middle of the courtroom. Her entire life literally depended on that decision.
Benis can now remain in the U.S., get married, raise her baby, and finish her education. Most importantly, she is now SAFE.
These are the possibilities when we welcome people with dignity and show them #youbelong
