Did you know that Joe Perdue looks like a chicken?

On March 17, 2007 one of my clients had a cancellation of removal case in immigration court. The case is based on having been here over 10 years, having a U.S. citizen child and the child having a serious illness; asthma.

To start the case the Immigration Judge asked my client the following questions;

1. What is your name?
2. Who do you work for? Perdue Chicken
3. Do you know Joe Perdue? No
4. Did you know that he looks like a chicken? what?

These questions were translated from English to Spanish which only raised the level of humor.

Then the Judge determined the following; if according to INA § 216(c)(4)(A), if my client (1) has been physically present in the U.S. for a continuous period of not less than 10 years immediately preceding the date of such application; (2) has been a person of good moral character during such period; (3) has not been convicted of an offense under INA §§ 212(a)(2), 237(a)(2) or 237(a)(3); and (4) establishes that removal would result in exceptional and extremely unusual hardship to the alien’s spouse, parent, or child, who is a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident. My client was granted their cancellation of removal based on the children's asthma.
