1. If Affirmative asylum seeker received a final denial of his claim/case from asylum officer after the interview, will Affirmative asylum case automatically be “referred” to the Immigration Court?
2. Can asylum seeker with denied case still appeal to an independent body in Falls Church, Virginia known as the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA)?
3. After a Denial by the BIA—can he/she still Appeal to U.S. Court of Appeals?
If there are other options please let me know.
