HIV and Immigration Issues
Many people falsely believe that they will not be admitted into the United States or issued a "green card" if they are HIV-positive. Many more fear deportation because of their HIV status. If you are worried about HIV and immigration, you should know that you have options. Foreign nationals who apply for lawful permanent residence in the United States may seek a waiver of the HIV ground of inadmissibility. The lawyers at the Law Office of Robert B. Jobe can help you understand what this means for you.
Deportation Defense for the LGBT Community
Our team of attorneys takes even the most complex cases and provides strong and effective deportation defenses. Often, applying for asylum is an effective way for individuals to defend against deportation, especially if they face persecution based on sexuality, gender identity or HIV-positive status. You may have other options as well. These include protection under the UN Convention Against Torture, temporary protected status, deferred enforced departure and T nonimmigrant visas.
At the Law Office of Robert B. Jobe, we file appeals on behalf of people who identify themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or intersex, as well as people who are HIV-positive. To protect our clients' rights, we appeal asylum and immigration issues to administrative bodies, like the Board of Immigration Appeals, and appellate courts, including the United States Supreme Court.
