    BIA’s position on the INA 212 Waiver for lawful permanent residents who adjusted

    in Legal

    BIA’s position on the INA 212 Waiver for lawful permanent residents

    In a recent decision, Matter of J-H-J-, 26 I & N Dec. 563 (BIA 2015), the Board of Immigration Appeals held, An alien who adjusted status in the United States, and who has not entered as a lawful permanent resident, is not barred from establishing eligibility for a waiver of inadmissibility under section 212(h) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. § 1182(h) (2012), as a result of an aggravated felony conviction. Matter of E.W. Rodriguez, 25 I&N Dec. 784 (BIA 2012), and Matter of Koljenovic, 25 I&N Dec. 219 (BIA 2010), withdrawn.

    When Congress amended the immigration laws a few years ago, it disallowed green card holder the ability to cancel deportation if that person committed an aggravated felony. For a number of years now, the various federal circuit courts of appeals struggled with the issue of whether a person who adjusted status in the US is still eligible for a discretionary waiver after committing an aggravated felony.  Most circuits (2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 7th, 9th, 10, & 11th). The 8th circuit said no, Roberts v. Holder. The 1st circuit has not decided that issue. The BIA in a minor holding said that since most circuits (9 out of 11 said yes it have to create uniformity through the country. If you consular processed for your green card, no waiver is available for an aggravated felony.

    Temporary Protected Status (TPS) is a special benefit that the United States gives to citizens and national of certain countries. This grant of benefit could be based on a number of things: earthquake, civil war, or some type of natural disaster. War in one’s country seems to be more common. On or about November 19, 2014, the United States government gave citizens & nationals from LIBERIA, GUINEA, & SIERRA LEONE who were present in the U. S. on 11/19/14 #TPS. Citizens and nationals form the above named countries who may qualify for #TPS needs to apply by 5/18/15 to secure such a benefit. If a person does not apply by 5/18/15, (s)he may miss the opportunity to obtain TPS.This round of TPS lasts 18 months.  With a work permit one can apply for a social security card. You can work lawfully and you may obtain a driver’s license. Always try to have date stamped documents in your name. Try not to commit crimes. Two or more misdemeanors could cause you to lose #TPS. If you get a Felony, your TPS evaporates; it will not be renewed when it expires. Provided one does not commit crimes and (s)he timely renews during the registration period, the US government will not remove you to your country of citizenship/your usual place of residence. Check my book out for more tips on TPS. If you are in removal proceedings and you are from one of the above mentioned countries, an Immigration Judge (IJ) may grant you TPS. Matter of Lopez-Aldana,If the IJ denies your TPS, you may seek review at the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). If the BIA denies your TPS, you may seek review at your respective circuit court of appeals.Bah. Cangemi. Marcus Jarvis is an immigration attorney.

He masked his changes with humor for 3-4 years before admitting he needed help.  Together Jane and Waring discovered his personality change, short term memory, fatigue, depression - among other symptoms - were from his accident. Thus began their long road to rehabilitation and adapting to his "new normal".

    'The Matt Duffin Show' - Every1Wins Racing & Us 2015

    in Sports

    TMDS LIVE! from Rosebud Village was gonna be a replay, a blast from the past.  Well, I move forward (rarely straight) as a goal of each moment, and I'm about out of here, and TMDS Medical Director Dr. Kevin Butterfield wanted to do a short show.  We'll be talking Racing, with a TBI Halo.  Kevin and I have worked, and worked, and planned and plotted to get TBI's associated with Auto Racing.  World wide.  People race, and folks get brain injuries, across the globe.  Seemed to fit to me.


    It seemed to fit to 2014 TransAm Champion Ernie Francis Jr. as well.  It truely fits on former TransAm driver John Mills.  I'll see if they are too busy to call in or not Sunday.  Kevin has the mic, (mostly), I got the buttons (always).  Over the last half year of deeper prodding (my job, Kevin hates the TBI slow stuff - too bad!), and planning (obviously his job, I mean, come on - ME PLAN!) the table continues to grow.  Seats are filling up, and YOU can still sit right with us (especially if you buy - I like those guys).


    Kevin are myself are going to talk about our summer plans, what's 'clean enough' to over the air anyway, introduce in a baby step way his week on BIRN, and probably laugh quite a bit.  Unless he don't think I'm being serious about racing.  WATCH OUT!  TBI?  The Brain?  Smart Doc, loves to laugh.  Racing?  Grab your harness and strap yourself in for a serious time at the track.  We plan on showing you and involving you in professional racing like you never thought possible.

    'The Matt Duffin Show' - HIPPA This: Dr. 'B' & Me

    in Social Networking

    HIPPA laws. The good, the bad, the nosey.  After all, medical professionals involved in your health can read the files - and they go home, talk with their spouse, their friends about their work.  Its normal. However HIPPA's intent is to protect privacy.  Yet, my intent is to share medical and heath issuses intow with a Traumatic Brain Injury.  Uh, got's me some experience and education in the TBI field. Enough for paid work?  No. Enough to teach? Occasionally, yes.


    Enough to understand that to share the issue, you have to be on stage, removing all privacy in order to communicate understandably with BI folk.  They and 'what ever the issue of the moment is' can be enlightened with 'knowing trustfully' the messenger understands, cares, wants for better than today.  That's me.  Tri-host Sam Way feels the same, but he'll talk about toys, er, games.  Melissa Meeps?  Dunno, have learned NOT to try to understand what women are thinking; just flow.


    Of this mental mess if not health shattering past two-months I've led (62 Days, but WHO's counting!), we've made it (so far).  Is there ligtht at the end of the tunnel?  Dunno, wasn't envolved with the constrution of the tunnel.  But, Doctor Samantha Backhaus has been HEAVILY involved with the reconstruction of Matt Duffin.  So be nosey!  Compare. This Rosebud Trooper from The Village me up with Doc "B" on Thursday.  My third appointment is the past month.  Lot's going on.  Lot's.  As a Neuropsycologist locally in Indianapolis, creator of BICS, PEER Mentoring (her style), Couples Care and more, Dr. Sammie's work is very Internationallly known.  But we're keeping her.  Trust me - ya got to go thru Milton first to steal her away from her Hoosier horde of Survivors.

    'The Matt Duffin Show' - Because I should/want/can? No, Because I Need YOU

    in Social Networking

    I could use a tug, an uplift, encouragement and by all means thoughts on when we are LITERALLY and PHYISCALLY being wrecked.  I push hard the training and education I've been gratefully recieved, and recieving for recovery - especially the early years.  I'm in my sixth 'season' of Severe TBI Survival.  And done well, mentally.  Physically is what has brought me here today.


    Had morning 'coffee' with Craig, talked about a replay, finding a replacement host, or letting him know a couple hours before 10:00 pm EST what I wanted to do, he could help.  Well....."Help Me If You Can I'm Feeling Down."  With all the recent, semi-traumatic true-life drama goning on in and around my humble Milton abode, I again realized what Mr. Sicilia was getting across to me.  What do I want to do?  Share the good with the bad, the issue with the strategy, the rest with the play and the accomplishments  with the "still workin' on it".  TBI life, as is, as we can make it be.


    It's never comfortable, and misery can erase happiness before the pleasure of a moment.  I get my support, my grand plan, my uplift from not only helping others, but mainly by having those others help me.  "And I do appreciate you being  'round".  Can we talk.  Its not the Matt Duffin hour, its the sharing of TBI Survival life hour, and how we face it.  No HIPPA law here, use me and my situations as a running  board for thoughts and ideas.  "Help me get my feet back on the ground."  Let's use yours (again, no HIPPA threats please - we're media rights protected).
