Our client, a Haitian national, was convicted of possession with intent to deliver marijuana. In the past, he would not have been able to apply for cancellation of removal. The recent appeals court case of Donawa, changed the landscape for people with this conviction in the State of Florida. Because of the Donawa case, we were able to make the argument that our client was able to qualify for cancellation of removal. The individual hearing was held in the Miami immigration court and, after the hearing before an Immigration Judge, our client was granted relief and will retain is green card
Cancellation of Removal granted.
