Our client was charged with deportation for a crime related to possession of a controlled substance. He was a citizen and national of Ukraine, who entered the United States as a Legal Permanent Resident. Action Taken: Chicago Immigration Advocates submitted an application for cancellation of removal for certain permanent residents on behalf of our client. Results: The Immigration Court found that our client deserves a favorable exercise of discretion based on his long residence in the United States, his considerable family connections and other favorable factors. Our client remains in the United States to this day as a lawful permanent resident.
