Immigrant Rights Clinic wins relief from deportation for longtime lawful permanent resident

The Immigrant Rights Clinic recently won its case to prevent the deportation of a longtime lawful permanent resident to Haiti. The clinic's client, who has lived in the United States since 1983 and is the mother of a young United States citizen, faced deportation based on a ten-year-old drug possession conviction. On January 13, 2010, Immigration Judge George Chew granted her cancellation of removal based on her positive equities and the government agreed not to appeal the decision. She was represented by Connie Tse '10, Elizabeth Carlson '10, and Laura St. John '09 under the supervision of Alina Das.
