Alonso Chehade once again granted a last-minute stay of deportation

Our client, Jorge Alonso Chehade, was granted deferred action just hours before his scheduled check in with US immigration officials.  Due in large part to the efforts of Senator Cantwell and her staff, the Department of Homeland Security deferred the deportation of Jorge-Alonso Chehade on Monday January 4. Alonso Chehade has been ordered to report to immigration officials on Feb. 15 instead.

Please contact Senator Cantwell at (206) 220-6400 or email her through her website at to thank her for her efforts on behalf of Alonso, and advocate for comprehensive immigration reform including the DREAM Act.
