New 2nd Circuit Immigration Decision Makes New Sense of Drug Convictions

Immigrants, especially legal residents, with drug convictions, may see new relief in the 2nd Circuit (New York, Vermont & Connecticut).  Recent 2nd Circuit case, Harbin v. Sessions, now makes it more difficult for the Department of Homeland Security to pull legal permanent residents into deportation proceedings based on convictions involving drugs.

Speak to your immigration lawyer immediately, especially if you are presently in removal proceedings, to check on whether this new development can help your case.
