Our client is a citizen and national of India who has been in the United States for over 20 years. He originally arrived legally on an H1B visa. While travelling back from Puerto Rico, he was stopped by CBP officers and placed in removal proceedings. The issue in the case was a statement he made to one of the officers that he was a United States citizen. A false claim to citizenship can prevent someone from being granted Cancellation of Removal. After testimony, the Immigration Judge found that the Government cannot sustain
Cancellation of Removal granted.
