Client Granted Withholding Of Removal Despite Prior Deportation Order

Client Granted Withholding Of Removal Despite Prior Deportation Order

Cohen Forman Barone successfully obtained Withholding of Removal for an El Salvadoran client who had previously been ordered deported. Immigration Customs and Enforcement (“ICE”) initially came into contact with the client after he was arrested for felony assault charges. After Cohen Forman Barone’s criminal litigation unit secured a non jail sentence, ICE took him into their custody. Due to the favorable plea in criminal court, the law firm’s immigration unit successfully argued that the client remained eligible for relief in immigration court. After a contested hearing the immigration judge granted Withholding of Removal, finding that the client’s life was in danger if deported. After spending more than six months in an immigration detention facility, the client was released and has returned to the arms of his loved ones.
