Immigration Court grants motion to reopen in absentia removal order, freeing client

Published: Feb 12, 2007 Source: My Source

An Immigration Court granted a motion to rescind an order of removal entered in absentia against a non-citizen in 2001, and reopening the Immigration Court proceeding.  The client was detained in late November, 2006, and an immediate motion was filed to stop the client’s imminent removal from the U.S.

The client denied receipt of a notice scheduling the case for hearing, and we presented the client’s eligibility for a green card if the case were to be reopened.  The client was released from USICE custody the day that the order granting reopening was received, and the client, reunited with his wife and 2 young U.S. citizen children, may now apply for permanent resident status.
