Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

DREAMer Elier Lara no longer facing deportation

Rate this Entry

The Immigration Court in Buffalo, New York has signed an order dismissing removal proceedings against my client, Elier Lara.  Elier's case obtained national prominence when a poster sized picture of him was placed on the floor of the Senate by Senator Durbin when he reintroduced the DREAM Act last month.









Prior to Senator Durbin's actions, the Obama Administration was unwilling to do anything to help Elier fight off deportation, and local DHS attorneys were specifically precluded by Washington from joining in a motion to dismiss.  


After Senator Durbin got involved the Administration's tune changed dramatically, and local DHS attorneys were permitted to reached out to me, offering to draft a motion for dismissal. The Immigration Judge in Buffalo, New York signed the order late last week.


Here is the bottom line.  If you have a family member who is facing deportation from the United States, and if he or she is DREAM Act eligible it is imperative that you take immediate action to get their case publicized. Your first line of defense is to contact the people at DREAM Activist, United We Dream, and/or America's Voice.  Petitions on Change.org are also an invaluable tool.   These good people are the foot soldiers in the war against the Obama administration's deportation machine, and they are trained activists.


Feel free to contact me (716-854-1541), as I will be more than happy to help promote your case through social media, and/or evaluate what legal remedies are potentially available.
