Ude, Jr. said. "Given the well-documented and high level of violence that LGB people face in Jamaica, a decision that fails to acknowledge this complexity virtually guarantees that LGB immigrants will be sent to very dangerous conditions. With this decision, Anthony can now go back before the Immigration Judge, to whom he has already submitted voluminous evidence that in Jamaica he would face torture for being gay. He is one step closer - a big step - to getting the protection that he needs."
