Our client was detained at Krome Detention Center and facing deportation. He was also the victim of a violent crime during which he received gunshot wounds. We filed for a “U” Visa which is set aside for victims in the United States of violent crimes committed against them by United States citizens or Lawful Permanent Residents. We received notice from USCIS that the “U” Visa was accepted for processing and, as a result, the Office of Chief Counsel, Department of Homeland Security agreed to terminate removal proceedings.
Removal proceedings terminated
