He was detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and transferred to a detention center to await a hearing in front of an Immigration Judge in Houston, Texas. He was charged with being inadmissible under section 212(a)(2)(B) of the INA as an immigration who has been convicted of two or more offenses for which the aggregate sentences to confinement actually imposed were five (5) years or more.

Although the client had an extensive criminal history, dating back to 2000, he was eligible for a waiver under section 212(h) of the INA. This section allows certain crimes to be waived for Legal Permanent Residents (LPRs) who have been residents for five (5) years and who have resided lawfully in the United States for seven (7) years prior to the issuance of the Notice to Appear.
