Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Man Flying from France to Mexico now facing Deportation in the United States

Rate this Entry

The United States government never ceases to amaze and amuse me. 

I was just retained on a case involving a lawful permanent resident of the United States who was flying from France to Mexico.  His flight was diverted in mid-air to Montreal, Canada by the United States government.  The flight was diverted en route to Mexico because like
the late Senator Kennedy
, my client is on the U.S. government's
super-secret "No-Fly" list.

My client has no status in Canada and was denied admission by the Canadian government.  He was then forcibly returned to the United States by the Canadian government.  This has resulted in him being placed in deportation proceedings for attempting to enter the United States without proper documentation, despite the fact that he has a green card.  He is being held in custody at a federal detention facility and the U.S. government refuses to release him.

I just received a copy of the charging document, and the Government is not alleging that my client has engaged in any activity anywhere in the world that would warrant his placement on a "No-Fly" list, which isn't surprising because he has never served in Congress.

I'm scheduled to be back in Court with him early Tuesday morning and at that time I will respond to the Government's near frivolous allegations that he is inadmissible.  At my request, the Immigration Court has issued a decision that it lacks jurisdiction to review custody determinations of the Department when an individual is being charged as an arriving alien.  Parenthetically, the Government has charged my client as an arriving alien.  How convenient.

I'll keep you posted as this case is going to get interesting.

    Matthew, like you, I am never surprised at what the government can cook up next. I often wonder if this is simply to keep busy. I would like to hear what happens before the IJ - so few IJ's really hold the government's feet to the fire. Good luck with this one!
