Clients are often told that there is nothing that can be done because they have a detainer from Immigration and Customs Enforc

ement (ICE). Likewise, clients struggle with resolving domestic matters because of uncertainty over how this will affect their immigration status. Our attorneys have the skills and knowledge to represent a client in criminal, domestic, and immigration courts seamlessly and effectively.

It was a great week for Calderón Seguin PLC clients! We are happy to report that two of our clients were granted asylum. The first client was threatened with death and tortured by the MS-13 gang and police officers because he refused to smuggle drugs into local jails. The other client fled her country after suffering years of domestic violence without any protection from her government.

We also received a grant of a client's appeal, where the judge wrongfully denied him protection from torture. He is now entitled to a new hearing to present his case.

Great news before the weekend! Calderon Seguin will keep fighting for our immigrant clients.

¡Fue una gran semana para los clientes de Calderon Seguin PLC! Nose complace informar que a dos de nuestros clientes se les aprobó el asilo. El primer cliente fue amenazado de muerte y torturado por la MS-13 y agentes de policía porque se negaba a introducir dr**as de contrabando en las cárceles. La otra cliente huyó de su país después de sufrir años de violencia doméstica sin ninguna protección de su gobierno.

También recibimos la aprobación de la apelación de uno de nuestros clientes, donde el juez le negó injustamente la protección contra la tortura. Ahora el cliente tiene derecho a una nueva audiencia para presentar su caso.

¡Buenas noticias antes del fin de semana! Calderon Seguin seguirá luchando por nuestros clientes inmigrantes.

CSPLC partner Anam Rahman Petit was recently quoted in an article by The Baltimore Banner about the problematic mass advancement of trial dates in our local immigration courts, often without proper notice.

"Anam Rahman, a Virginia immigration attorney and adjunct professor at Georgetown Law, said the changes are creating 'chaos' in the court system. Cases are getting reassigned to new judges, who each have different preferences on policy and procedure. Attorneys don’t know if they should appear for hearings online or in-person, or if they can expect to get extensions on deadlines for filing documents, Rahman said.

Preparing for a hearing can be time-consuming, she said. Attorneys have to request documents from other countries, hire experts who can testify about conditions in those faraway places, order psychological evaluations for their clients and prepare the individuals they represent — many of whom have been through traumatic experiences — to undergo grueling probes in court, where they will be asked to describe in detail sexual assaults, threats and violence, Rahman said.

The hearing rescheduling issue is affecting all types of immigration cases, she said, but the consequences could be especially dire for those seeking asylum.

“You could be deporting a client to their death if they don’t get the relief they require,” Rahman said."

The opening of new immigration courts and hiring of new judges — measures taken by the court system to address a massive backlog of cases — is contributing to confusion, attorneys say.

In honor of , the Bar wishes to recognize Hispanic lawyers in the Commonwealth who have made a major impact on the justice system. Here are just a few of those lawyers.

VSB President Stephanie E. Grana is the first Latina to head the 50,000+ lawyers of the VSB in its 84-year history. She has served as president of multiple professional organizations including the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association and the Metro Richmond Women's Bar Association. To learn more about Stephanie, check out her profile in the August 2022 issue of Virginia Lawyer: https://bit.ly/Aug22VL8

Luis A. Perez of Falls Church is a prolific volunteer at the VSB and within his Northern Virginia professional community. He has taken on numerous leadership roles in the profession, providing invaluable guidance to those groups. Perez is the current chair of the Conference of Local and Specialty Bar Associations (CLSBA); former Diversity Conference chair; and a former president of the Hispanic Bar Association of Virginia, the Fairfax Law Foundation, and the Fairfax Bar Association.

Ofelia L. Calderón of Fairfax is a pro bono advocate and former president of the Hispanic Bar Association of Virginia who received the Lewis F. Powell Jr. Pro Bono Award in 2017. Calderón has advocated for the rights of immigrants for years, volunteering with groups like the National Immigration Project and Capital Area Immigrants' Rights Coalition and taking multiple cases from the Legal Aid Justice Center.

The Bar thanks all Virginia lawyers of Hispanic heritage for their invaluable contributions to the profession and their service to the public.

!ALERTA DE FRAUDE! - La Oficina Ejecutiva de Revisión de Inmigración (EOIR) anunció hoy que el número de teléfono de la Corte de Inmigración de Arlington ha sido "suplantado" como parte de una campaña de desinformación para obtener dinero de manera fraudulenta. Las personas que llaman haciéndose pasar por empleados o funcionarios de la corte de inmigracion avisan a las personas de que su número de seguro social ha sido comprometido y solicitan dinero a las víctimas. Estas llamadas son fraudulentas; el personal de la corte de inmigracion no llama a las personas para preguntarles por su número de seguro social ó para pedirles dinero. Para protegerse, desconfíe de responder a las llamadas telefónicas de números que no reconoce. Nunca dé su información personal por teléfono a personas que no conozca.

FRAUD ALERT - The Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) today announced that the phone number for the Arlington Immigration Court has been "spoofed" as part of a misinformation campaign to fraudulently obtain money. Callers posing as EOIR employees or officers advise individuals that their social security number has been compromised and request money from the victims. These calls are fraudulent; EOIR personnel do not call individuals regarding social security numbers or to request money. To protect yourself, be wary of answering phone calls from numbers you do not recognize. Never give out your personal information over the phone to individuals you do not know.
