Jane does not wish to do this because her father is abusive to her. She wishes to remain a resident of the U.S., and her uncle in California will become her legal guardian. In order for this to occur, a petition for asylum will need to be filed.
While we know that this is the course of action that needs to be taken, there are some present issues that need to be addressed. First, there is the issue of how the petition will need to be filed. According to the Department of justice and other reliable sources, only the parent can file the petition (2002; the City University of New York, 2008; Migration & Refugee Services, 2010). Then, there is the issue of whether or not her uncle can serve as her legal guardian, as refugees under the age of twenty-one are still considered to be children (Refugee Info, 2010; Immihelp®.com, 1999-2010). Finally, there is the issue of misrepresentation. If a case involving an immigrant is misrepresented, there will be severe consequences for the misrepresentation (Honore, 2005; U.S. Department of State Foreign Affairs, 2009). To be sure that we carefully address each of these issues, a thorough research plan will need to be put into place, making sure that each issue is given careful consideration. This will be done in the following ways:
www.refugeeinfo.org Being that this site is devoted to helping refugees, this will be an excellent resource, since Jane is considered to be a refugee and will need to follow the same process that refugee’s do, in order for her to continue to reside in the U.S. legally.
Jane’s rights will only be best defended if we have the proper information about the laws regarding the petition of asylum, as well as concerning the proper processes that will need to be followed. Because knowledge is power, it is important that we have as much of it as possible to insure success of this case. Such knowledge can

The paper tells that the law of immigration and asylum dates back to the late 1950s when the international community resolved to ratify a common protocol through which to perceive and protect foreign citizens. The rationale of such understanding emanated from the Rome Treaty of 1957 which established the European Economic Community.
The author analyzes two literary books: Nellie Bly’s “10 Days in a Madhouse” and Nora Vincent’s “Voluntary Madness” which were written centuries apart. These two writers shared the same theme and experienced in almost the same situations in two different eras and time frame. Both of these writers shared the same experiences of being insane.
Several decades on, very little research has been done whether cross border restrictions remain as important as the fundamental factors that started them. Speaking with some few legal brains on the debate, most are those who contend that even though the factors and reasons may not be the same as those that started the laws, the laws remain important even today; but for different reasons.
Article 3 states that both mental and physical ill-treatment are prohibited (Harris et al., 1995). Both private and public treatment are considered under this Article as well (Ireland v. United Kingdom, Judgment of 18 January 1978). In Greek Case (1969) 12 YB 1, the court asserted that the three prohibitions of Article 3 are related to one another - torture is inhuman and degrading, degrading behavior is torture, and so forth.
Currently, there has been growing concerns on the number of persons seeking haven in various countries around the world, speculating widespread misconceptions and varying media interpretations of asylum seekers. The discussion on all issues affecting asylum seekers is shaky.
Persons seeking international protection in the European Union (EU) have increased tremendously since the 1990s. As a result the member states need to find a common solution to this situation. This process of integrating the refugees in the European Union forms a part of the larger process of European integration which began with the Treaty of Maastricht (1992).
Posner (1975) wrote the first empirical paper relating to rent seeking. His guesstimate recommended that the social costs of rent seeking in the regulated sector of the U.S. economy could be substantial. Cowling and Mueller (1978) presented estimates of the welfare loss from monopoly control in the United States and United Kingdom, which included calculations of rent seeking kinds of costs.
