A Milestone in Our Client’s Life!
Yesterday, following an interview, and after passing his citizenship test, our client’s application to become a U.S. citizen was approved. When I first met him at the detention center, he was a scared 16 year old facing deportation. We gained his freedom – release under bond. We defended him in his deportation proceedings, and helped him become a lawful permanent resident. Today he is steadily employed as an electrician; he has a wonderful wife and they recently purchased their own home in an upscale neighborhood on the North Shore. They are happy and building their lives together. His story is the story of many of the immigrants who help our nation flourish. Thanks to my office staff – everyday they make a difference in our clients’ lives. #Naturalization #Teamwork #KeepingFamiliesTogether #NassauDefender #ImmigrationMakesUsStronger
Keeping families together is the best part of the work we do! Today our client received his green card! He is now a legal permanent resident! We won non-permanent resident cancellation of removal for him following a trial. These cases are very difficult to win, because you must demonstrate the person would suffer: “exceptional and extremely unusual hardship” in order to win. It is all about documenting the hardship, humanizing the client and his family, and presenting a compelling case. Thanks Lorena & Fabiola for all of your help! It’s all about teamwork!
