Our client, a native and citizen of Guatemala, was placed in removal proceedings and detained at the Krome Detention Center in Miami, Florida due to two convictions for marijuana possession and a conviction for resisting arrest. Our client came to the United States at the age of 8 months and has resided here ever since. In addition to his convictions, his driving record was abysmal. He cares for both his Grandparents in a retirement community and we presented that and other equities during his individual hearing before the Immigration Judge. Despite his criminal history, the Immigration Judge granted his waiver application for Cancellation of Removal for Permanent Residents.
