I Submitted a Fake Story for an Asylum Application; What If They Catch Me?
A frivolous application for asylum can do permanent damage to your chances for immigrating to the U.S.
I entered the U.S. without inspection and soon after learned that one of my only options to stay in the country legally was to apply for asylum. With the help of a notario, I submitted a fake story that stated that I feared persecution based on my political views. What will happen to me if the U.S. government discovers that I lied?
