Cohen, Todd, Kite & Stanford's Richard I. Fleischer wins case in front of Immigration Judge saving Cincinnati Pastor Keith Thomas from Deportation. Thomas, who was convicted of minor drug conviction 30 years ago was facing deportation due to draconian immigration laws. Thomas, who entered the USA legally, had a wife and children in the US, has served as a pstor at the Vineyard Community Church in Cincinnati.
Richard Fleischer, argued that Thomas' deportation would create an extreme hardship for his family. Neither he nor Thomas would discuss the hardship, but it convinced Immigration Judge Rodger Harris to halt deportation proceedings.
Congrats to Keith, Richard and the entire Vineyard Community!
Good to hear a positive immigration case once and a while.
