U.S. Supreme Court Allows Undocumented Immigrant to Stay

El Diario/La Prensa, Posted: Jun 19, 2008

NEW YORK The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision that Samson Taiwo Dada, a Nigerian undocumented immigrant can stay in the country, reports Spanish language newspaper El Diario/La Prensa. Prior to the ruling, Dada voluntarily signed deportation documents, but retracted his decision and filed a petition to legalize his status. The ruling allows immigrants to retract voluntary deportation if they request it before the 30-day deadline. Dada acquired a temporary U.S. visa in 1998, which expired in 1999 and made his claim earlier this year before his deadline passed. Dada's case could affect many other immigrants who are in similar situations, according to the report.
