BIA remands for consideration of eligibility for relief from removal

Published: Jan 15, 2007 By: Eric W. Schultz Source: My Source
The Board of Immigration Appeals has sent a client’s case back to the Immigration Courtfor further hearing.  Eric W. Schultz, Esq., argued on behalf of the client, a permanent resident from Russia, that, because the client had accrued more than 5 years of lawful permanent residence in the U.S. while his case was pending, and had been physically present inside the U.S. for more than 7 years before the court case began, he should have a chance to apply for cancellation of removal even if the finding of deportability against the client was legally correct.  The BIA agreed, and sent the case back for a full hearing on whether the client deserves the opportunity to remain in the U.S.
