By Reena BhardwajWashington U.S., May 17: The US Supreme Court has decided against an Indian citizen who has spent decades in the country and faces deportation after entering the country illegally in 1992 and seeking to become a lawful permanent resident.However, when his petition to update his identity (obtaining a green card) was pending, he checked a box on a drivers license renewal request falsely claiming to be a US citizen.He was charged with making a false statement afterward.Although the charges against him were dropped, the Department of Homeland Security then placed him, his wife, and one of his sons in removal proceedings for removal.

The US attorney general can offer deportation protection, but applicants must first be able to apply.The result of the immigration judges' decision in Patels' case was that he was ineligible, writes Barrrett, arguing that immigration law prevents judicial review of factual allegations that justify a waiver of help.
