man frm burma denied asylum

The IJ denied asylum to Mr. Thu, from Burma, because he was inconsistent and because he did not know what was inside his own passport.
1. he said he was a member of the "Rakhine" ethnic group, but his I.D. card said, " Bamar."
2. he said he was not a member of a student political group, but his I-589 said that he was.
3. he said he was in prison for the 12 months of 1997, but his passport had a stamp in it, stating that he traveled in September 1997.
4. he said his government hated him, but his government issued him a passport, and also extended it.
5. he said he had very strong political opinions; but he only joined an oppositional party in the USA after two years of arrival.

What should the smart asylum applicant do?
1. read your own passport; read your own documents.
2. keep your story short, simple, and clear, so that you can repeat it later, so your mother can write a letter of support that is consistent with your history.
3. The more details you write down, the more details you must remember. Do you want your Judge to think: "what kind of moron would say one thing, and then voluntarily give me documents that say the opposite? what kind of moron would do that?"
6. if you have strong political opinions, then act on them! Be active! become famous, notorious, and conspicuous!
