HSR obtains immigration relief for individual detained at LAX Airport

Hadsell, Stormer & Renick was recently successful in arguing that an undocumented individual who was detained at LAX when she went to greet her sister arriving from Mexico was entitled to humanitarian parole. By winning this argument, the client was successful in adjusting her immigration status and became a U.S. lawful permanent resident.

Humanitarian parole is a discretionary measure exercised by the U.S. Attorney General which allows individuals to enter the United States for a temporary period of time. Humanitarian parole is only granted for urgent humanitarian reasons or for significant public benefit. Receiving humanitarian parole does not grant the individual any immigration relief and it is not regarded as an admission to the United States. Humanitarian parole is rarely authorized and when granted, it is typically for serious medical reasons, to reunify youth with their families, or for witnesses in criminal and civil proceedings. Individuals who are granted temporary humanitarian parole into the United States may be able to adjust their immigration status and become U.S. lawful permanent residents.
