A few months ago, a client hired us to take over a case pending on appeal before the Board of Immigration Appeals (“Board”). Our client was asking for cancellation of removal because he had been physically present in the US for ten years or more, was a person of good moral character and claimed that his deportation would result in “exceptional and extremely unusual hardship” to his United States citizen child. His child had a number of medical conditions that were stable, but which needed constant monitoring.
Recently, our office received an order reopening deportation proceedings for a Mexican couple in Polk County who had been fighting removal for a very long time. Their application for cancellation of removal had been denied and appealed, sent back to the Immigration Judge and denied again.
