did you suffer any emotional or economic harm?

Mr. Alberto Aragon was denied asylum, even though he was detained and threatened three times.

The judge said there was no physical harm. Mr. Zheng was held for five days in prison; no asylum for him either.

Mr. Aragon did NOT testify he suffered economic harm, such as lost income, fines, inability to earn money. He did NOT testify that he suffered emotional distress when he was surrounded by a group of men with guns. He did not testify as to what thoughts went through his mind at the time. He did not suffer from nightmares, flashbacks, or eating disorders.
