Conviction with Removal Cases: In Re: ——, Saliou, (February 26, 2010)

In Re: ——, Saliou, (Chicago Immigration Court, February 26, 2010). Legal challenge: Our client was charged with removal for a conviction relating to possession of a controlled substance. He was a citizen and national of Senegal, who entered the United States as a Lawful Permanent Resident. Action taken: Chicago Immigration Advocates first filed a motion to terminate, in order to challenge the adequacy of the proof filed by the government. We also filed an application for asylum and withholding of removal on behalf of our client based upon his fear of returning to his native country on the basis of his homosexuality. Result: The Immigration Court found that our client established that he was a member of the homosexual community and would likely face persecution on account of his homosexuality if he were returned to Senegal. Our client remains in the United States to this day as an asylee.
