  • In conjunction with the Comisión Mexicana de Defensa y Promoción de los Derechos Humanos (CMDPDH) or the Mexican Commission for the Defense and Promotion of Human Rights, Greenberg Traurig’s Mexico City pro bono team represented a Salvadorian family seeking refugee status in a litigation against the procedural decision issued by the Comisión Mexicana de Ayuda a Refugiados (COMAR) or the Mexican Commission for Refugee Aid. The procedural decision indefinitely suspended interview applications for refugee status and the issuance of resolutions, which are essential phases in the Procedimiento de Reconocimiento de la Condición de Refugiado (PRCR) or the Procedure for the Recognition of Refugee Status. The judge ruled in the family’s favor and found the contested procedural decision unconstitutional for leaving asylum seekers and detained individuals in a state of legal uncertainty in Mexico.
