Asylum case won

Asylum case won

Jacinta* hired The Costas Network when she was facing imminent removal from the United States. Jacinta had been reporting with ICE on an Order of Supervision since 2013. In December 2017, when Jacinta* went to report to ICE, she was detained. Jacinta* had fled El Salvador in 2004 because of domestic violence at the hands of her gang member partner. When she entered the United States she was apprehended at the border. In 2005, she was scheduled to appear before an Immigration Judge in Harlingen Texas, and at that time she was not aware of this. So, she did not appear in Court and was consequently ordered to be deported. Years later, Jacinta* discovered that she was subject to a deportation order. She then hired an immigration attorney, who filed a motion to reopen her case.  A month later, The Court denied said motion. When ICE detained Jacinta* in December 2017, she hired The Costas Network to prevent her deportation and help her reopen her case with the Immigration Court. Attorney Costas went to visit Jacinta* in jail in order to work on the Motion to Reopen her case and on her Motion to Stay. One day after attorney Costas had filed Jacinta*’s Motions, she had found out that Jacinta* was already put on a plane to Los Angeles, to then be put on a plane to El Salvador. Attorney Costas then urgently contacted the Harlingen Court, explained the emergency situation to the Court Clerk and the Court Clerk put the Motion to Stay on the Court’s desk, who ruled on it that same day, and Jacinta* was brought back into detention while the Judge made a decision on her Motion to Reopen. About 2 weeks later, the Judge granted the Motion to Reopen and vacated her removal order. Less than a month later, attorney Costas was able to get Jacinta* out on bond. While Jacinta* was with her family, attorney Costas worked on preparing a strong asylum case and prepared Jacinta* for her immigration hearings in Harlingen Texas.  Now Jacinta* lives happily and most importantly safe in Cleveland OH. Soon she will be receiving her green card as a result of being granted asylum status.
