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" ?

That is, unless the attorney is inexperienced or is paid too little to effectively and efficiently complete the process....Read more »
