Philadelphia Immigration Lawyer Helps Father Return to the U.S. to Bid Farewell to His Son

Philadelphia immigration lawyer, Elizabeth C. Surin, Esq., partner at Philadelphia immigration law firm of Surin & Griffin, P.C., effectively represented a grieving father and former illegal alien seeking the right to re-enter the United States to bury his 10-year old son who died in a house fire in Pennsylvania.  Ms. Surin appealed to the Customs and Border Patrol requesting a humanitarian parole for her client.

Ms. Surin’s client entered the U.S. illegally as a teenager.  He later married a U.S. citizen. After a traffic violation, the man was turned over to immigration authorities and he agreed to leave the U.S. voluntarily. Since then, with the assistance of Ms. Surin, he has been pursuing legal permanent residency in order to reunite with his wife and son.

Ms. Surin’s win on behalf of her client is significant because it is estimated that the American government only approves a quarter of the 1,200 requests from immigrants requesting short-term entry due to an emergency situation.   Read the full story.
