Attorney Lynch Successful in Adjustment of Human Trafficking Deportee
Attorney Lynch, of the Law Firm Rudinski, Orso & Lynch, in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, represented a foreign national from Indonesia who was charged with human trafficking. Mr. Lynch was retained after his client, who was previously granted asylum, was criminally convicted and awaiting deportation. His client had also previously been found guilty of violations of United States tax laws.
Mr. Lynch appealed the human trafficking conviction on the basis that his client was charged under the wrong offense. The man was a driver for an employment agency that employed undocumented workers in Scranton Pennsylvania. The Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) agreed with Mr. Lynch and vacated the charges. The foreign national was subsequently recharged with transporting illegal aliens within the United States, which is also a deportable offense. At the Master Calendar Hearing Mr. Lynch asked for several forms of relief, including withholding a removal under the Convention Against Torture (CAT) and adjustment of status.
After an extensive Merits Hearing, the Immigration Judge found the foreign national admissible and adjustable under the Immigration & Naturalization Act (INA). Mr. Lynch’s client is now a legal permanent resident and after nearly two years has be reunited with his United States Citizen wife and two United States Citizen children.
