EMP is pleased that ICE has released another of our DACA clients from custody at Stewart Detention Center. Working with several agencies, EMP attorney Joseph Lambert successfully assisted this young person in returning home to family, getting criminal charges dismissed and ICE to agree to his release without need for a bond hearing. This is Mr. Lambert’s third DACA client in recent months whom he has successfully helped return home to family after ICE had detained them.
“Representing individuals with DACA who are at risk of having their lives torn apart because of a deportation is an honor and a challenge,” said Mr. Lambert. “This is often the only country these individuals know and they have built their families here. It is very gratifying to see them reunited with their children and loved ones.”
