Didi, you made me laugh out loud. Yes, he got his narrative for the asylum petition from one of his Moroccan buddies there, who claimed it had worked for him. When I expressed discomfort, he said EVERYONE was doing it. He tried to base it on persecution for being an atheist (the stories were identical) and gave as his contact in Morocco his DEAD FATHER's name, and that he spoke to him on the telephone weekly. Does he really think the officials don't verify the information they are provided? Apparently so, which goes to show you how stupid he and his buddies are. I know he was very upset that the consular officer at the U.S. Embassy in Casablanca saw right through him at his visa interview. He thought it was going to be a slam dunk, because every other step in the process had been approved (thanks to my efforts and expense, not his). Had he done his research, he would have known what might occur, and what evidence might be asked for, but he thought he could just waltz in and answer a few questions in his own language. No, he had not bothered to learn any English, thinking he could do that when he arrived in the U.S. He really thinks he is entitled to everything, and should only have to do the bare minimum to get it. Again, you reap what you sow, you get what you're willing to work for, but he believes everything should be handed to him on a platter. Though when you give them something on a platter, they don't appreciate it. Not only that, they treat it like garbage. These guys are something else. What, I wouldn't like to say in polite company. Thanks for sharing your inside knowledge.
