Our client entered the US in August and sought asylum. We immediately informed ICE that he was represented by counsel. 3 days later, they acknowledged it by email. So far, so good.
They did his interview without informing us, so no lawyer. It was denied.
We had told our client to request an appeal before an immigration judge. He did.
Again - his court date was scheduled, and we were not informed, despite our repeated attempts to connect with ICE.
Finally, they put him in a processing center, slated for removal. We filed a petition in federal court.
Finally! Now we could see what happened in the case! Now we could articulate our legal arguments!
But of course not.
How can we know when ICE is silent?
The saga continues, but I'll be damned if I let ICE deport my client from right under my nose.
