On August 9th, 2018, the Board of Immigration Appeals has agreed with Syed Jamal that he should be given an opportunity to present his deportation case to an Immigration Judge.  This is a clear victory for not only the Jamal family, but the his community of supporters who advocated for due process.

“This is certainly a wonderful day for Mr. Jamal, his wife and their three children.” said Rekha Sharma-Crawford, Jamal’s lead attorney. “Since the Board of Immigration Appeals remanded the case for a full hearing, Mr. Jamal and his family will now have the opportunity to ask an Immigration Judge to review multiple forms of relief allowed under the law; it is also a good day for the rule of law.” Sharma-Crawford said.

“The family could not be happier”, said Alan Anderson a partner at Polsinelli and a friend of the family.. “Syed is part of our community’s fabric and we are thrilled with the Board’s decision”.

The Jamal family thanks you for all of your support, this victory could not have happened without you. Please continue to stay engaged and we will keep you informed as the case progresses.
