OI 207.4 Firmly resettled.
The issued of "firmly resettled" shall be viewed in the light of 8 CFR
. In order to support the effort to internationalize resettlement of refugee the following factors should be considered: (1) Do the circumstances indicate that the alien will be permitted to remain for an extended period of time in the third country? (2) Is the refugee accorded the same privileges made available to other alien residents of that country such as (i) opportunity to own property (ii) educational opportunities, (iii) issuances o travel documents and ease of travel, (d) availability of public
assistance? Aliens being afforded such privileges by a third resettled. This presumption can be overcome by the submission of countervailing evidence. The burden of proof is upon the refugee to establish that firm resettlement has not been accomplished.
