Some immigrants seeking Austin firm's help see hope turn to despair By Jeremy Schwartz AMERICAN-STATESMAN STAFF Updated: 12:10 a.m. Monday, June 20, 2011 Published: 12:05 a.m. Monday, June 20, 2011 After fleeing their native Venezuela in 2000 because of death threats from the newly installed regime of Hugo Chávez, Sara Salazar and her husband — she was a lawyer and he a government official — arrived in Austin with tourist visas and hastily packed suitcases.

“A good immigration lawyer should be able to give you an honest and thorough assessment of your case and be able to explain the options that are available to you based on not only the current law, but changes that are in the legislative and judicial pipeline at any given time. He should tell you the bad parts of your case as well as the good. If it can’t be done, he should say so.”
“Un buen abogado de inmigración debe poder darle una accesoria completa y honesta en relación a su caso y ser capaz de explicarle las opciones que tiene disponibles basadas no solo en las leyes corrientes, pero también en los cambios hechos en el proceso legislativo y judicial en cualquier momento dado. El deberia decirle lo bueno y lo malo de su caso. Si no se puede hacer nada, deberia decirselo.”

We have had occasion to note the striking resemblance between some of the laws we are called upon to interpret and King Minos’s labyrinth in ancient Crete. The Tax Laws and the Immigration and Nationality Acts are examples we have cited of Congress’s ingenuity in passing statutes certain to accelerate the aging process of judges. In this instance, Congress, pursuant to its virtually unfettered power to exclude or deport natives of other countries, and apparently confident of the aphorism that human skill, properly applied, can resolve any enigma that human inventiveness can create, has enacted a baffling skein of provisions for the I.N.S. and courts to disentangle. The fate of the alien faced with imminent deportation often hinges upon narrow issues of statutory interpretation. The instant petition, which requires us to determine whether the petitioner is ineligible for the discretionary relief afforded by Section 212(c) of the Act, 8 U.S.C. s 1182(c), because he has not accumulated seven years of residence in this country since his admission to permanent resident alien status, is no exception. Emboldened by Thesean courage and fortified by a close examination of the statutory language, we believe that the Board of Immigration appeals erred in denying the petitioner relief on the ground that it did, and remand for consideration on a proper basis.
