Deyvi Alexander De Leon v. Attorney General of United States, Docket No. 20-2381, United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit
Our attorneys represent Mr. De Leon in his appeal to the Third Circuit of a Final Order of Deportation from the Board of Immigration Appeal. Mr. De Leon lived with his parents in New Jersey for the past 15 years. He arrived here when he was 15 years old. He graduated from Steinnert High School in Hamilton and went to college until he no longer could afford it. His father, 68 years old, is a United States Citizen who suffers from Dementia. His mother, 63 years old, has a work-related disability and is unable to care for her husband. Our client was placed in removal proceedings for overstaying is visa. He represented himself at his immigration hearing. He sought relief from deportation claiming his parents would suffer extreme hardship if he was deported. The way his hearing was conducted violated his constitutional rights and deprived him of a fair opportunity to present his case. He was denied the right to testify and call his father as a witness. He appeared for his hearing by tele-video. Appearing in court on a television screen and the Judge denying him a continuance further violated his due process rights. It precluded him from using relevant documents that he had in his hands at his hearing. Briefs have been submitted to the Court and the matter is pending.
