Felipe Molina Mendoza is all smiles just before he walked into Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Office in Charlotte on Tuesday, February 14, 2017. Felipe was persecuted, stalked and assaulted in Mexico because of his sexual orientation. With Mexican authorities refusing to protect Felipe, Felipe faced no other option but applying for asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border. Despite the fact that Felipe's life is in danger in Mexico, Felipe was ordered deported in March 2016. An appeal is, currently, pending in the 4th Circuit.
