Federal Court Block Deportation of Afghanistan National on SIV

March 18, 2017

On Wednesday, a federal high court prevented the President Trump’s led administration from sending back a man of Afghan descent who was attempting to come into the United States with a special permit kept specially for those who have come to the aid of the United States mission in Afghanistan at a detriment to their lives.

Moments before the immigration officials were deployed to return the receiver of the permit back to Afghanistan, the court of appeal granted an impermanent stay of deportation in reply to an urgent request put forward by the man’s attorneys on Wednesday.

The officials from the department of homeland security kept the man under arrest, whom attorneys refused to identify for matters about privacy when he came into the country via the Newark International Airport on Monday night, Elizabeth Foydel disclosed to reporters.

Elizabeth is a lawyer for the international refugee assistance scheme, which is amongst three bodies looking to see him set free.

His matter would have been the premier known case of an individual of Afghan descent to receive the special immigrant permit and the second known case in the space of a few days involving the special permit holders being put under house arrest in their attempt to come into the country on legal grounds.

Elizabeth stated that migration officials had kept the 25-year old man for around thirty-six hours without allowing him access to an attorney, during which the federal agents claimed he willingly took back his application to enter the country.

On Tuesday night, the united states state department declined his permit, at the order of the customs and protection body, Elizabeth said.

Officials of the border protection department refused to provide comments on the issue of the man. A federal judge rejected a former plea by the attorneys of the man to stop the deportation back to Afghanistan, but the court of appeal impeded his expulsion.

The government of the United States made the special permits scheme mainly for nationals from Iraq and Afghanistan in 2007 in a bid to make available an immigration platform to individuals in those nations that had assisted the United States’ aims in those countries usually as translators for the Army, even at great danger to themselves.

The scheme screening procedure is highly extensive and needs to be confirmed by a lot of government bodies, including the department of homeland security.
