Our client is a Cuban National who was placed in removal proceedings due to a conviction for possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance (drugs). Because of this conviction, our client did not qualify for political asylum. Although he was issued a parole when he entered the United States in 1980, his parole was revoked in 1994. We obtained a new indefinate parole for him and represented him in removal proceedings. After filing an application for withholding of removal and a long hearing, the Immigration Judge granted his application. As a result, our client cannot be deported or removed to Cuba even if he is on the “secret list” of Cubans who can actually be physcially deported to Cuba.
Withholding of Removal Granted.
