Deportation and Removal Defense
Persons receiving a Notice to Appear (NTA) from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging that they are removable from the US, may have a number of defense options to prevent their removal. Under the direction of the Managing Attorney, a former prosecutor of such cases, our clients gain an edge in their cases by presenting cases that are difficult for the Government to overcome.
- Asylum/Withholding of Removal can granted for immigrants to the USA who can demonstrate legitimate fear of returning to their home country due to potential torture or persecution due to Race, Religion, Nationality, Membership in a particular social group, or Political opinion. Withholding of Removal is provided to a person who can establish that, upon ejection from the United Sates, the person’s “life or freedom would be threatened on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a social group or political opinion”. Withholding of removal will prevent the applicant from being removed to the country where his/her life would be threatened; However, upon successful approval of the applicant’s petition, the applicant can still be removed to a third country. Unlike claims for Asylum, there is a mandatory prohibition against removal if such evidence is provided to the court.
