Letter from a Central Asian detainee
Author AAV requests assistance in securing funds for a bond, so that he can be paroled from the detention center while he goes through the asylum process. Included with the request is a copy of his declaration of asylum, a notice to appear before an immigration judge for a removal hearing (DHS form I-862), and a completed credible fear worksheet (DHS form I-870) with accompanying notes. These official documents detail Author AAV's reasons for seeking asylum, which include violent persecution by nationalist and white supremacist groups as well as fear of retaliation from police forces for the author's exposing police corruption. For the protection of the author's privacy and safety, only the cover letter is available.
