Deportation Defense And Article III Of The Convention Against Torture (CAT)
If you have been detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and are facing a removal proceeding with possible deportation, our deportation defense attorneys at Wilson Law Group provide aggressive defense strategies. Our firm was founded in 2003, and our immigration lawyers have decades of experience helping foreign nationals remain in the United States.
The United Nations Convention Against Torture
The United States is a signatory to the United Nations Convention Against Torture (CAT). This means that the United States may not return a person to a country where that person is more likely than not to be tortured. “Torture” has been defined as severe pain or suffering which is intentionally inflicted for a wrongful purpose by a public official, or with the consent or acquiescence of a public official.
Protection under a deportation defense claim made by arguing that Convention Against Torture applies is available regardless of the torturer’s motivation or the applicant’s past criminal activity. If the applicant proves that it is more likely than not that he or she will be tortured, the immigration court must grant relief.
A grant under the Convention Against Torture may be terminated if an immigration court determines that it is no longer likely that you will be subjected to torture.
Experienced And Aggressive Removal Defense Strategies
Wilson Law Group has a record of successful results aggressively arguing that clients deserve protection of removal under asylum, qualify for withholding of removal, and Article III relief under the United Nations Convention Against Torture (CAT).
