I.                   Introduction

 

This motion to reopen is for failure to receive notice and does not require any fee.

 

Respondent asserts under penalty of perjury that he did not receive a court notice of hearing from his former counsel, Mr. XXXXX, Esq. (Affidavit as Attch.A.)

 

Respondent’s former counsel, Mr. XXXXX, Esq., sent a letter to Respondent stating an incorrect date of hearing. The former counsel’s letter states in pertinent part as follows, “Please be advised that you have an adjourned hearing before IJ Elstein on May 30, 2011 at 8:30 am – a copy of the hearing notice is enclosed.” (Emphasis added.) (See Attorney’s letter as Attch. B.) The date of “May 30, 2011” is incorrect. Respondent asserts under penalty of perjury that the actual court notice was not enclosed with the letter. (Affidavit as Attch.A.)

 

In addition to reopening for non-receipt of the notice, Respondents prays to reopen as follows:

-          for ineffective and fraudulent representation by the “immigration service” firm Lime2Lime, which contracted to change venue of the hearing to Phoenix Immigration Court, while unauthorized to practice before immigration courts;

-           for inability to appear in court for serious (life threatening) illness of his wife and serious illness of his mother on the day of hearing;

-          new circumstances

-          pursuant to this Honorable Court’s sua sponte authority.

 

Respondent, through undersigned counsel, moves this Court to reopen and remand the Respondent’s case to the Immigration Judge (“IJ”) in New York, New York. Respondent intents to apply for the following relief:

-          Adjustment of Status based on a pending I-130 immigrant visa petition by the Respondent’s U.S. citizen wife under the Immigration and Nationality Act (“INA”) Sec. 245(a);

-          Adjudication of the I-751 Petition to Remove Conditions previously denied by the USCIS;

-          I-589 Application for Asylum and Withholding of Removal, based on changed country conditions in the Russian Federation;

-          Alternatively, voluntary departure.

 

Respondent is worthy of the favorable discretion and exercise of the Board’s sua sponte authority, because Respondent has no criminal history ( See FBI “No Arrest” record as Attachment F) and contributes to the community by:

-          voluntary blood donations (Attachment G);

-          financial donor to charity (Attachment I).

 

 

II.                Statement of the Facts and Case

 

Respondent is a 29-year-old mail, native and citizen of the Russian Federation, formerly an LPR with his LPR status terminated based on a denied I-751, residing in Scottsdale, AZ, married to a U.S. citizen, never arrested or convicted for a crime, engaged in service for his community as voluntary blood donor and a financial sponsor of a charity.

This Honorable Court ordered Respondent removed in absentia on 5/31/2011.

 

Respondent attended his 2/23/2011 hearing and was represented at that time by Mr. XXXXX, Esq. Respondent asserts under penalty of perjury that his former counsel, Mr. XXXXX, Esq., did not give him the actual court’s notice of his next hearing. (Attch. A)

 

Respondent believed that his hearing was set on 5/30/2011, because his former counsel, Mr. XXXXX advised him so in a letter. (Attch. B)

 

Respondent relocated from Brooklyn, NY to Scottsdale, AZ in in March 2011. Upon relocation to Arizona, Respondent hired a firm Lime2Lime, which he believed to be a lawfully operating low cost “immigration service” firm on basis of their large sign displaying the word ‘Immigration”. Respondent contracted with the firm Lime2Lime to change the location of his hearing from New York to Phoenix. Respondent was under impression that the date of his hearing would remain the same, and only the location of his court hearing would change. Respondent further believed that the change of venue was permitted, because the firm Lime2Lime “guaranteed” the result.

 

Respondent asserts under penalty of perjury that he appeared in the Phoenix Immigration Court on 5/30/2011 for the hearing he believed to be held there and then. (Attch. A)

 

Respondent states under penalty of perjury that his wife was seriously ill and bedridden on 5/31/2011, and that he was unable to leave he unattended. Respondent further asserts under penalty of perjury that his mother was also seriously ill on 5/31/2011 and he assisted her by making telephone calls on her behalf.

 

III.             Legal Argument

 

(A) Non-receipt of a court’s notice of hearing and defective notice by former counsel.

 

Respondent asserts he did not receive a court’s notice of hearing and received a misleading (incorrect date) notice from his former counsel. (Attch. A)

 

This motion is timely pursuant to INA Sec. 240(b)(5)(C)(ii), which provides in pertinent part as follows,

 “Rescission of order. – Such an order may be rescinded only – []upon a motion to reopen filed at any time if the alien demonstrates that the alien did not receive notice in accordance with paragraph (1) or (2) of section 239(a) “.

 

This motion to reopen is duly supported by affidavits pursuant to 8 C.F.R. Sec. 1003, 23(b)(3). Respondent stated in his sworn affidavit as follows,

 

“Affidavit

 

I, LASTNAME Firstname, first being duly sworn state as follows:

  1. This affidavit is for the New York Immigration Court in support of the appeal and motion to reopen my immigration case.
  1. I am now under the in absentia Order of Removal by a U.S. Immigration Judge for non-appearance at my court hearing in New York Immigration Court.
  1. I did not appear at my hearing in New York for a mixture of three reasons:

a) I did not have the actual court notice and I had a wrong date of May 30 given to me by my former lawyer XXXXX, Esq. in a lawyer’s letter (letter enclosed);

 b) I was under mistaken belief that my representative immigration firm Lime2Lime had changed my court location (venue) from New York to Phoenix for my May 30 hearing (because they guaranteed they would) and I actually appeared in the Phoenix Immigration Court at 200 E. Mitchell Dr., Phoenix, AZ 85012 on May 30, 2011 because I thought it was a proper court to appear (the court was closed);

c) On the actual day of my hearing May 31, I was overwhelmed with simultaneous serious medical illnesses of my wife and my mother to such an extend that I would not be able to go to my hearing even if I was informed that my hearing was on May 31 and not on May 30. My wife was so ill, I feared she would die on that day.

  1. My removal is a direct result of negligence, incompetence and fraud of the immigration firm Lime2Lime of 4011 75th Avenue in Phoenix, AZ85033 that represented me in immigration matters. I now learned that the immigration firm Lime2Lime is not and has never been authorized to practice immigration law, contrary to their big sign “Immigration”. This firm is all fraud as it is not even properly registered to do business in Arizona, but is simply a trade name.
  1. I hired the immigration firm Lime2Lime to help me with my immigration problems, because they guarantee results and guarantee the lowest prices in town for immigration services. The immigration firm Lime2Lime has many offices around Phoenix with big signs “Immigration”. The firm is busy with immigration clients and looks legitimate, prominent and solid. (Photos enclosed.) Their claim that their prices are low because they handle volume of cases makes sense from the stand point of economy of scale. That is how I was deceived by them.
  1. I hired Lime2Lime on March 25, 2011 to transfer the location (venue) of my immigration hearing from the New York Immigration Court to the Phoenix Immigration Court and to file an I-130 Petition for Alien Relative from my wife. They charged me $70 for venue change from New York to Phoenix, and $70 for I-130 petition. They also collected $420 for the INS application fee. They guaranteed that their prices are best in town and they guaranteed that location of my court hearing be changed to Phoenix. I believed.
  1. They guaranteed(!!!) that my court hearing would be in Phoenix, and that I do not have to travel to New York for my May 30 court appearance. I liked the convenience of going to the Phoenix Immigration Court. Because the firm Lime2Lime appear immigration professional, and because I paid them and gave them all the necessary documents, I believed them. I believed that on May 30, 2011 I must go to the Phoenix Immigration Court instead of the New York Immigration Court. The date May 30, 2011 was incorrectly given to me by my former lawyer XXXXX, Esq., but as for the location of my hearing, I believed that it was changed to Phoenix.
  1. Having hired Lime2Lime to transfer my court case from New York, I switched my attention to my wife’s and my mother’s health problems. My wife is very ill with lupus autoimmune disease. She had an attack of her illness at the last week of May, and I was consumed with the medical issues. My wife was placed on an increased dose of a powerful immune suppressing medication, which rendered her susceptible to infections. I cared for her in every way that she does not contract any infection. On May 30, 2011 I left my wife for a brief period of time to appear in the Phoenix Immigration Court. (That effort was for nothing, as the court was closed and my hearing – contrary to my lawyer’s letter – was not May 30.) When I got back, my wife has gotten worse. The next day, May 31, my wife was so weak I could not have left her, even if I knew that I had a hearing on May 31. My mother had an anxiety attack on May 31 (because her boyfriend threatened to kill her) and I helped her by calling different places on her behalf. I had been torn between my bedridden wife and the telephone with my mother’s medical provider’s. My mother is not able to communicate effectively in the English language when she is under stress, and I had to help her when she had crisis.  My wife was very ill, and I feared she might die. The day of May 31 was a very bad day.
  1. In the first week of June, as I did not actually have the court hearing on May 30 (which I still believed to be date based on my former lawyer’s letter) I asked Lime2Lime when I shall go to the Phoenix Immigration Court. They told me to go to the firm’s different location at 2202 24th Street and ask there. I went there on two occasions and did not get any answers, because the knowledgeable person was never there. I could not go more often or wait for unpredictable amount of time, because my wife was very ill. While in the vicinity of the 24th Street and trying to get answers from Lime2Lime, I drove by the State Bar of Arizona at 4201 N. 24th Street. I came in, explained my situation and the front desk person gave me the complaint form. I now filed the complaint against Lime2Lime with the State Bar of Arizona.
  1. In mid June the firm Lime2Lime admitted that they lost my case and said ‘sorry’. They refunded $140 legal fee I paid to their firm and gave back the $420 they collected for the INS application fee. They hid from me that I was already ordered removed for nonappearance in court.
  1. I at all times wanted to go to my court hearing, but in Phoenix instead of New York. The immigration firm Lime2Lime guaranteed to change location (venue) of my May 30 court hearing from the New York Immigration Court to Phoenix. Intending to appear at my court hearing I dutifully went to the Phoenix Immigration Court on May 30, which I believed to be the date of my hearing based on my lawyer’s letter. It turned out that the immigration firm Lime2Lime did nothing on changing the location of my hearing, and the location (venue) was still in New York. I am now convinced that they failed to change the location of my hearing, because they are simply not authorized to practice immigration law. I am a victim of unauthorized practice of law by the immigration firm Lime2Lime. If that firm Lime2Lime was not sprawling over the Phoenix area and loudly advertising their low-cost one-stop-for-all services with their big “Immigration” signs on the building tops, I would have not entrusted my immigration matters to their care. The fact is, I missed my court hearing in New York in false reliance on their guaranteed venue change of my May 30 hearing to Phoenix.
  1. I never missed any court hearings, before the immigration firm Lime2Lime mislead me by guaranteeing to transfer location (venue) of my hearing from New York to Phoenix for my May 30 hearing. I had no intention of failing to appear, and I went to the Phoenix court on the day I thought was my court day.
  1. My circumstances are more complex, than just fraudulent representation by the immigration firm Lime2Lime. I was misled about the date of my hearing by my former attorney XXXXX, Esq. He never gave me the actual court notice for the hearing, which I ended up missing. He gave me a letter stating INCORRECT date of my hearing in his letter. (Letter is enclosed.) The letter makes reference to a court notice, but the actual court notice was not enclosed with that letter. According to my former lawyer’s letter, my hearing was to happen on May 30, 2011. As I now learned, I was ordered removed on May 31, 2011, and I assume that my hearing was in fact set to be held on 31st, and not on 30th as my lawyer informed me. I filed a complaint against my former lawyer XXXXX, Esq. for handling my case negligently and giving me the wrong court date.
  1. I state that I had no reason to hide from the hearing, because I myself asked for adjustment of status through my U.S. citizen wife. I would be in court if I was not under the mistaken belief that my court was changed to Phoenix.
  1. I pray to forgive me for non-appearance at my May 31 hearing in New York for the following reasons:

a) My wife and my mother were very ill on that day and I would not be able to appear at risk of my wife dying if I left her alone;

b) My former lawyer XXXXX, Esq. gave me the WRONG court date of May 30, and never gave me the actual court notice;

c) I was defrauded by the immigration firm Lime2Lime that the location of my May 30 hearing was changed to Phoenix, and I actually went to the Phoenix court trying to appear as I have always done before.

I certify under penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct to the best of my knowledge and believe.

Firstname LASTNAME: /signed/ Date: 6/28/2011”.

 The Respondent’s statements that he did not receive a court’s notice of hearing, that he believed his hearing date be 5/30, and that he believed the venue was changed to Phoenix, do not fall in a category of “inherently unbelievable”, therefore, should be accepted as true. See Celis-Castelano v. Ashcroft, 298 F.3d 888, 892 (9th Cir. 2002); Maroufi v. INS, 772 F.2d 597, 600 (9th Cir. 1985). 

Absent of showing that Respondent was served a court notice, it should be found, that Respondent was not put on notice of an upcoming hearing of 5/31/2011. The attorney’s letter contained in the Attch. B states the date of hearing as “May 30”, which is incorrect on it’s face.

 Even if the notice given in Court to the Respondent’s counsel satisfied statutory and constitutional requirements, Respondent is allowed to reopen his case after in absentia order if he did not receive notice. INA 240(b)(5)(C)(ii). In this case, Respondent has satisfied his burden to show that he did not receive notice by rebutting the presumption of delivery  by stating that his former counsel did not give him the court’s notice and by presenting the actual letter by his former counsel setting forth the incorrect date of hearing in question.

 

Furthermore, an in absentia order in this case would lead to an unconscionable result because Respondent is an LPR (status terminated by the USCIS and not duly reviewed by an IJ) and married to a US citizen, and he is removed without adjudication of his claims on merits while clearly defrauded by the non-attorney representative Lime2Lime and misadvised on the date of hearing by his former counsel.

 

A prima facie showing of eligibility for relief is not a prerequisite to reopening proceedings following an in absentia hearing. Matter of Ruiz, 20 I.&N. 91(BIA 1989). Respondent, however, proceeds to show his prima facie eligibility for relief as he alternatively seeks reopening based on changed circumstances, based on illness of wife and mother, and sua sponte authority of this Court.

 

(B) Serious illness of wife and mother preventing appearance.

 

This motion is pursuant to INA sec. 240(b)(5)(C)(i) and is based on exceptional circumstances. The INA provides as follows, “Rescission of order.-Such an order may be rescinded only – (i) upon a motion to reopen filed within 180 days after the date of the order of removal if the alien demonstrates that the failure to appear was because of exceptional circumstances (as defined in subsection (e)(1))[]”. See INA sec. 240(b)(5)(C)(i). The Respondent’s wife and mother ill on 5/31/2011. Respondent stated in details that his wife was bedridden and he could not leave her on 5/31/2011. (Attch. A.) His wife supports his statement in her own declaration. (Attch. E)

 

 

(C) Ineffective assistance of the former counsel and fraud by non-attorney representative.

This motion is based upon the attached affidavits of Respondent. See Attch. A. Respondent believes that his former attorney, XXXXX, Esq., prejudiced him by misinforming him about the date of the very hearing he missed.

 

Respondent raises claim of ineffective assistance by his prior counsel, therefore no production of new evidence shall be required. See Matter of N-K- & V-S-, 21 I&N Dec. 879, 880 (BIA 1977); Matter of Lozada, 19 I&N Dec. 637 (BIA 1988) aff’d, 857 F.2d 10(1st Cir. 1988); Osei v. INS, 305 F.3d 1205 (10th Cir. 2002).

 

Ineffective assistance of counsel may constitute ‘exceptional circumstances’ as defined in the Immigration and Nationality Act, in order to reopen removal proceedings. Respondent seeks the Court’s sua sponte authority in this matter, but satisfied the requirements of Matter of Lozada, 19 I&N Dec. 637 (BIA 1988). Pursuant to Lozada, a motion to reopen based upon a claim of ineffective assistance of counsel requires the following:

(1) that the motion be supported by an affidavit of the aggrieved respondent setting forth in detail the agreement that was entered into with counsel with respect to actions to be taken and the representations made by counsel;

(2) that counsel whose competence is impugned be informed of the allegations and be given an opportunity to respond, and

(3) that the motion reflect whether a bar complaint has been filed and, if not, why not.

Respondent is in compliance with these requirements.

 

Respondent provided an affidavit given under penalty of perjury. His first affidavit is contained in the Attachment A and sets forth in detail the agreement that was entered into with counsel with respect to actions to be taken and the representations made by former counsel. This affidavit reflects Respondent’s position on the bar complaint against his former counsel.

 

The certificate of service of the instant motion indicates that the same was served on the Respondent’s former counsel. The former counsel, Mr. XXXXX, Esq., therefore has an opportunity to know the Respondent’s allegations and respond to them.

  

The right to counsel is grounded in the Fifth Amendment guarantee of Due Process. Matter of Lozada. Although non-citizens do not possess a Six Amendment right to assistance of counsel at government expense in immigration proceedings, they do have a right to competent representation at their own expense. INA Sec. 242(b)(2) & 292, 8 U.S.C. Sec. 1252(b)(2) & (1362; 8 C.F.R. Sec. 238.1(b)(2)(i), 1003.102; Olvera v. INS, 504 F.2d 1372 (5th Cir. 1974) This fundamental right is considered a part of the Due Process guarantees under the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution. Orantes-Hernandez v. Thornburgh, 919 F. 2d 549, 554 (9th Cir. 1994.)

 

Respondent is a victim of unauthorized practice of law by a firm Lime2Lime, loudly advertising their low-cost services under the “Immigration” street sign.  The firm Lime2Lime promised to change the venue of the next hearing (implying to retain the date of the hearing), and failed to do so. Failure to provide the service specifically promised to a client is fraud. In similar circumstances courts have granted relief even absent a showing of prejudice. See, e.g., Waldron v. INS, 17 F. 3d 511, 518 (2nd Cir. 1994).

 

Respondent was misled about the date of the hearing by Mr. XXXXX, Esq., which deprived him of an opportunity to arrange his appearance. Subsequently, Respondent was defrauded by the non-attorney representative Lime2Lime and led to believe that his hearing is in Phoenix. The cumulative effect of these two consecutive errors by the former representatives constitutes prejudice to Respondent and outright violation of his Due Process right for competent representation. Fraud by a non-attorney representative is a valid factor in reopening a case. See Valera v. INS, 204 F.3d 1237 (9th Cir. 2000). (In Valera the one-motion rule was equitable tolled where the second motion was filed after respondent was defrauded by a non-attorney purporting to provide legal representation.) Errors of two different representatives is also a supporting factor in reopening matter. See Ray v. Gonzalez, 439 F.3d 582, 588-92 (9th Cir. 2006). (In Ray two attorneys failed to properly file motions to reopen, and errors of more then one attorney was a factor in reopening.)

 

 

(D) Changed circumstance.

This motion is based in part on the changed circumstances which renders respondent prima facie eligible for adjustment of status. In accordance with Matter of Arthur, 20 I&N Dec. 475, (BIA 1992) Respondent now has pending immigrant visa petition, that he did not have at the time of his last hearing. The immigrant visa petition on behalf of Respondent by his U.S. citizen wife was just filed on 6/28/2011. The freshly filed I-130 immigrant visa petition is evidence that is material, new and could not have been introduced at the Respondents last hearing. See 8 C.F.R. Sec. 1003.2(e).

 

Respondent represents that he did not leave the United States during or after the pendency of his removal proceedings. Respondent represents that he is not a party to any criminal proceedings. See 8 C.F.R. Sec. 1003.2.

 

An alien is prima facie eligible for adjustment of status if he (1) makes an application for adjustment, (2) is eligible to receive an immigrant visa and is admissible in the United States for permanent residence, (3) an immigrant visa is immediately available to him at the time of making application. See INA Sec. 245(a). Respondent meets this requirements.

 

The Board finds prima facie eligibility where  “the evidence reveals a reasonable likelihood that the statutory requirements for relief have been satisfied. We have not required a conclusive showing that eligibility for relief has been established. Rather, we have reopened proceedings ‘where the new facts alleged, when coupled with the facts already of record, satisfy us that it would be worthwhile to develop the issues further at a plenary hearing on reopening’” Matter of S-V-, 22 I&N Dec. 1306, 1308 (BIA 2000) (citations omitted).

 

Respondent supplied the I-485 application for adjustment of status package with supporting documents in the Attachment D. Because the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services does not have a jurisdiction to adjudicate the Respondent’s application for adjustment of status, Respondent seeks to reopen his removal proceedings so that an Immigration Judge can decide his application. The grant of the adjustment of status by an Immigration Judge would allow Respondent to lawfully remain in the United States. Respondent is mindful of his burden to prove bond fides of his marriage pursuant to the Matter of VelardeMatter of Velarde, 23 I&N Dec.253 (BIA 2002). Respondent respectfully reserves to supplement evidence.

 

The IJ or the Board may grant a motion to reopen when the motion offers new material facts that were not available at trial and “could not have been discovered or presented at the former hearing”. 8 C.F.R. Sec. 1003.2(c )(1). The Board has ruled: “[W]here an alien is seeking previously unavailable relief and has not had an opportunity to present h[is] application before the Immigration Judge, the Board will look to whether the alien has proffered sufficient evidence to indicate that there is a reasonable likelihood of success on the merits so as to make it worthwhile to develop the issues further at a full evidentiary hearing.” In Re M- S- , 22 I. & N.  Dec. 349 (BIA 1998); See also Matter of L-O-G-, 21 I.&N. Dec. 413 (BIA 1996). The Board grants a motion to reopen in part “upon the likelihood that the applicant will be granted the relief sought [] if reopening is permitted.Matter of Rodriguez-Vera, 17 I&N Dec. 105 (BIA 1970).

 

The legal argument for reopening in the instant case is similar to that in Cao v. DOJ, 421 F.3d 149, 156-58 (2nd Cir. 2005). In Cao presence of the respondent’s wife in the United States, her testimony and medical record constituted new evidence, and the court reversed the BIA’s denial to remand. In the instant case, the fresh filing of the immigrant visa petition, presence of the Respondent’s wife in the United States, her testimony and medical condition should constitute new evidence justifying remand.

 

Respondent is mindful of the fact that he must prove that his marriage is bona fide. Respondent submits evidence that his marriage is bona fide. Respondent’s wife provided her detailed affidavit. See Attachment E. Respondent provided his family photos as further evidence of bona fides of his marriage. Attch. F.

 

Absent DHS opposition, remand for adjustment of status should be granted even if Respondent fails to meet all the requirements. See Konstantinova v. INS, 195 F.3d 528 (9th Cir. 1999), see also Matter of Yeondwosen, 21 I&N Dec. 1025 (BIA 1997). Respondent prays that the Department does not oppose to reopen and remand.

 

Respondent respectfully requests the Court’s sua sponte authority to remand the instant case for additional fact finding. (In the event this matter is reffered to the Board, Respondent prays for the Board’s has sua sponte authority to remand. See Matter of A-H-, 23 I&N Dec.774, 790-91 (A.G. 2005))

 

IV.             Conclusion

WHEREFORE, the instant case should be reopen, rescind in absentia order and remanded to the New York Immigration Court.

 

Respectfully submitted on 6/28/2011
