GOVERNMENT CHARGE MAN WITH A FRAUD ALLEGEDLY COMMITTED WHEN HE WAS A BABY
Brooklyn, NY SEPTEMBER 25, 2014: In a series of unfortunate events a Brooklyn man’s mother and brother are murdered, and to add insult to injury, he gets a Notice to Appear from the Department of Homeland Security where he is to take notice of his removal/deportation hearing pursuant to a fraud allegedly committed when he was only a baby.
To make a long story short, a father angry with his son maliciously communicated to the US Department of Homeland Security that his “son” was not really his “son”, notwithstanding the fact that it was he, the informant, who signed the birth certificate and applied for his son to become a Legal Permanent Resident. Attorney Robinson Iglesias pleaded with the government to exercise prosecutorial discretion. In the son’s defense, the Immigration Nationality Act provides a Statute of Limitation of 5 years for the government to rescind Legal Permanent Resident status. Prosecutorial discretion is warranted because a baby lacks the mental capacity to participate in such fraud. The government agreed and the case was closed permitting the son to continue to grief.
