After 23 Years With a Removal Order, Mom of Four Gets ICE’s Approval to Reopen Her Old Case


This incredible victory means everything to this family of six and to us.

Our Client from Haiti has a U.S. Citizen husband and four U.S. Citizen children.

She was the only person in her family without permanent residency.  

She entered the U.S. on a boat in April 1999 and was issued a Notice to Appear in Immigration Court after Customs detained her.

She applied for asylum, but the Immigration Judge denied her case and ordered her removed in April 2000.

She then appealed the decision to the Board of Immigration Appeals and her appeal was denied in May 2002.

She was later granted Temporary Protected Status (TPS).

Her husband filed an I-130 petition on her behalf, and it was approved in August 2014.

She then applied for Adjustment of Status, and it was denied.

She later traveled outside the U.S. on her advance parole in 2016.

Our client then reapplied for Adjustment of Status, and it was denied a second time.

After being stuck for years, her husband booked a consultation with us in May 2022.

We first conducted a case assessment to study our Client’s immigration records from all major agencies.

We then determined that her case is a good fit for Prosecutorial Discretion.

We submitted a Prosecutorial Discretion Request to ICE on June 8, 2023.

We were thrilled when ICE agreed to join our Motion to Reopen and Terminate on September 11, 2023!

We commend our Client for never giving up despite her past denials.

This immigration fix is the most crucial step in our Client’s ability to adjust her status permanently!
