Tampa, FL asked in Immigration Law for Florida

Q: Can a Cuban Asylee apply to the Green Card by the Cuban Adjustment Act or does he need to apply as a regular Asylee?

The Cuban presented himself at a border point on the border with Mexico and requested asylum, was detained in a migration center for 3 months, went to trial, won the case and was released as an asylee.

Does this apply as "inspected and admitted or paroled" ?

A: The answer to your question depends on whether the individual in question was inspected and admitted or paroled. The individual should schedule a consultation with a competent immigration attorney and bring copies of all immigration documentation issued to him or her.
