Geovanni Hernandez-Montiel v. INS (USA)

A federal appeals court ruled in 2000 that a gay Mexican man who dresses and acts like a woman is entitled to asylum in the United States, expanding the circumstances that immigration officials must consider when foreigners ask to stay in the country. The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, which covers the Western part of the country, ruled on Thursday that Geovanni Hernandez-Montiel should be granted asylum. A three-judge panel sitting in Pasadena, Calif., unanimously overruled an immigration judge and members of an immigration appeals board, who had said he should be deported.
