Our client, a Jamaican national, was brought to the United States at the young age of 10 years old after her mother was killed in a violent crime due to political reasons. After the death of her mother, our client was sent to a boarding home in Jamaica, then to relatives she had never met in the United States. In both places, she suffered horrible abuses. For various reasons, she does not qualify for adjustment of status in the United States. Despite the hardship endured, our client graduated highschool and college and is now a Registered Nurse working in a busy trauma center of a local hospital. We applied for withholding of removal based on past persecution to her and her family. After a two hour hearing before a Miami Immigration Judge, the Judge granted the withholding of removal application and the Department of Homeland Security Trial Attorney waived appeal. This means that our client can remain in the United States with her family.
Withholding of Removal granted.
