Fredys’s Story

“God always has the last word”

With the help of Holy Trinity, a Jesuit parish in Washington, D.C., Fredys was able to build a new life for himself after he won his asylum case in June of 2018. While it has never been easy to win asylum in the United States, the buildup of obstacles to asylum over the last three and half years has made seeking refuge in the United States today almost impossible. Yet rather than get discouraged by this, Fredys advises migrants and their advocates to remember that “God always has the last word.”
