Loving father detained
Our client, Mr. N, came to the US illegally from China over 20 years ago. He was ordered removed back to China and his appeal was denied. However, Mr. N continued to live in the United States and pursue his American dream. He got married and became the stepfather of one child and, soon, the father of another. He and his wife ran a restaurant together. Understanding the dangers of his status, he dutifully set on the path to becoming a legal resident. An I-130 petition was filed on his behalf and it was during an interview for this application that he was detained by ICE officers. This news was devastating for the family, who had to run a restaurant, provide and care for themselves, and care for elderly family members without the emotional and financial support of Mr. N.
We got him out
In their letters supporting his case, his wife described the pain that that his detention has caused her and his two children passionately described a loving father who was absolutely dedicated to them. They wrote that even after Mr. N was tired from a long day of work, he would always find the energy to spend time with them and take them on family outings to amusement parks and to New York City.
Margaret W. Wong & Associates worked with Mr. N’s family to get him released from detention and rejoin his family. He now hopes to file I-212 and I-601A applications as the next step in his immigration process. We will continue to work with Mr. Ni and he may soon be the proud bearer of a Green Card so that he can live in the United States with his loving family.
