Our client, a native and citizen of Haiti is a green card holder based on refugee status. He applied for citizenship but was placed in removal proceedings before a Miami Immigration Judge because he was convicted four times for grand theft. These convictions were the result of insuffcient funds in his checking account but, nevertheless, were charged as theft. We contested that all of the convictions were not crimes involving moral turpitude and that the immigration authorities could not sustain their burden of proof. After an evidentiary hearing, the Immigration Judge ruled in our favor and dismissed all deportation charges. Our client can now resume his application for citizenship with USCIS.
