— Magdalena Cuprys, Immigration Lawyer
MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, August 22, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The law firm of Cuprys and Associates announced today that immigration lawyer Magdalena Cuprys won a “withholding of removal” (client will not be deported) in Immigration Court after a convoluted legal struggle.

Mr. C.M. is a 25-year-old Colombian citizen who entered the U.S. as a stowaway, and later filed an application for Asylum. All of C.M.’s applications for relief were denied by an immigration judge in August 2016. C.M. appealed to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), which remanded the case to the Immigration Court to clarify and reconsider its prior findings.

The Immigration Court found that C.M. had a credible fear of persecution if he were returned (deported) to Colombia. At the new hearing in Immigration Court, C.M. testified that three of his brothers were killed by a guerilla group, as well as two of his cousins. He himself was abducted and threatened.

Based on that testimony, the Immigration Judge denied C.M.’s asylum request, but granted withholding of deportation. As the Court noted, for a grant of withholding of removal, he must establish that his life or freedom would be threatened on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion. C.M., who is black, testified that he may be persecuted in Colombia based on his race. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security did not present any evidence to the contrary. The Immigration Court thus granted the relief that C.M.’s deportation will be withheld.

Ms. Cuprys expressed her satisfaction when she received the court decision. “C.M. and his family have suffered greatly. Several young family members were killed, and C.M. himself was abducted but luckily was able to escape. We are happy that C.M. can remain safely in the U.S. for the moment.”

The underlying case is “In the Matter of C… M…, #089-228-877 (Immigration Court, Krome Service Processing Center).
