Man remains in immigration detention pending court case

The path to citizenship isn't always clear, and sometimes, individuals get caught in predicaments while attempting to become legal residents of the United States. Due to recent events, one man remains in immigration detention while he and his attorney fight to have him returned to his home. Although this incident happened in another state, individuals located in New York may be interested in hearing about the man's troubled journey while seeking citizenship. 

The man, a chemistry instructor, is fighting deportation and is now located in a detention center. He was sent to the center after being taken off of a plane headed back to his home country. A federal judge ordered a second stay in the man's case, so he avoided deportation at that time. 

This individual has lived in the United States for 30 years but unfortunately has not yet been successful in achieving citizenship. His wife and children are U.S. citizens, and the man remains hopeful that he will be able to stay with them. The man is looking at all his options so that he can be removed from the detention center and returned home to his family. 

Unfortunately for this person, he remains in immigration detention for now. Some will wonder why the individual had not yet completed his citizenship process. Those familiar with U.S. immigration know that the process can be complicated and messy. In New York, a person who wishes to become naturalized may wish to consult with an experienced attorney with knowledge of current immigration law for assistance.
