Often it is the case that the cards are stacked against a person facing removal from the United States, regardless if they are a legal resident, have a temporary work visa, a pending U VISA, or perhaps no legal status at all. Regardless of one’s immigration status, it is important for an individual in removal proceedings to contest his or her removal from the United States. For immigrants that find themselves in removal proceedings the most important aspect of their life here in the United States is their family ties.
Many individuals facing removal from the United States do not want to be separated from the life they have here in the United States. Unfortunately, the life that they have here in the United States consists of immediate relatives and family members that are American citizens. Unfortunately, unless the Immigration Judge or IJ has very little discretion to take into account, a noncitizen’s long history in the country, U.S. citizen family members, community ties, and other factors that are relevant to the issue of whether the immigrant in removal proceedings should be removed from the county. It is with this understanding that the attorneys at Uribe & Uribe APLC work to find any and all possible defenses to combat a noncitizen’s removal from the United States. Legal representation is the single most important factor in determining whether someone will win or lose their case.
