Chicago Immigration Advocates’ Attorney Christine P. Varghese on September 8, 2020 won a Petition for Review before the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals for a Cameroonian citizen whose claim of withholding of removal was denied by the lower Immigration courts . Tandap v. Barr, 2020 WL 5405603 (7th Circuit).
Our client, who had a previous deportation order, hired Ms. Varghese to reopen his immigration proceedings before the Board of Immigration Appeals in order to apply for asylum, withholding of removal, and protection under the U.N. Convention Against Torture (“CAT”) based on the Cameroonian government’s growing mistreatment of the Anglophone minority group to which he belonged. Attorney Varghese successfully argued that the Government made serious reversible errors in its decision–namely that the Board improperly used the incorrect standard of proof and improperly ignored the expert report as well the client’s arguments for CAT protection. The Seventh Circuit vacated the Board’s decision remanding it to the Board to correct its errors.
