U.S. immigration officials are allegedly trying to deport him, complying with an Interpol Red Notice request Russia issued for Duralev.
Duralev is running out of options in U.S. courts, but he is still fighting; “I prefer to do than not to do,” he said.
The U.S. has allegedly complied with a Russian request to aid in the arrest of a political dissident, engaging in a lengthy court battle that could ultimately see him sent back to Russia, according to the victim.
Grigorii Duralev applied for asylum in the U.S. in January 2016 after he learned that Russia had charged him with large-scale fraud, Duralev told the Daily Caller News Foundation in an interview. When he responded to his initial interview summons with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) in 2018, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested him in the USCIS office and put him in the deportation process unfairly, he told the DCNF.
“When government makes a mistake in their procedures, they don’t have any dignity, even in the United States, to admit those mistakes,” said Duralev. Facing Deportation
ICE charged Duralev with overstaying his tourist visa, according to court documents shared with the DCNF.
Duralev argued that the official confirmation of a pending asylum application should have protected his stay in the U.S. until the USCIS officer’s decision according to Part 2, Section 3 of the application instructions .Instead, Duralev spent nearly two years in a detention facility, where he taught himself English and U.S. immigration law before being released on bond in 2020.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
