Cohen Forman Barone Wins Right For Client To Remain In U.S. Despite Felony Conviction

Cohen Forman Barone successfully fought for and obtained relief under the Convention Against Torture (“CAT”) on behalf of a client who was a former Central American gang member. The immigration judge issued her decision after a contested final removal hearing in New York City Immigration Court. The case was handled by Cohen Forman Barone throughout all stages of representation, including at a post trial bond hearing, at which attorneys secured their client’s release despite Immigration Customs and Enforcement’s (“ICE”‘s) attempt to keep him detained while the case was appealed to the Board of Immigration Appeals (“BIA”). ICE argued that despite the immigration court’s decision to grant CAT relief, the individual was still a danger to the community due to his prior gang affiliation and federal gun trafficking conviction. The immigration judge, however, sided with Cohen Forman Barone and the client has since reunited with his girlfriend and daughter after facing imminent deportation from the United States.
