Client of the Month March 2017: Torng Eang

Our Client of the Month for March 2017 is Torng Eang, a 17-year-old boy from Cambodia who has been separated from his mother for almost his entire life.  When Torng was two years old, his mother fled Cambodia in fear for her life after suffering years of abuse and violence.  Following her entry to the United States, Torng’s mother sought lawful status; however, given the backlogs before USCIS and the immigration courts, it took her over 15 years to become a lawful permanent resident of the United States.
