Cuprys & Associates (N/A:N/A)
MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, September 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The law firm of Cuprys and Associates announced that immigration attorney Magdalena Cuprys succeeded in obtaining bond for a client, Ms. C.A., a Mexican citizen.
C.A. was accused of improperly receiving public assistance payments and subsidized housing benefits in Pasco County, Florida, based on a fraudulent Social Security card that she had purchased for $100. She was taken into custody after an investigation at a subsidized housing project where 30 undocumented families and about 60 U.S. born children were evicted. According to news reports, some of the residents claimed that Housing Authority officials told them that they could live there regardless of their legal status in the U.S. as long as they had U.S. citizen children.
Ms. Cuprys commented that “it is unfortunate that all those families were evicted and had to find a place to stay elsewhere with their children. It appears that many of them sincerely believed that they were allowed to use public housing facilities. Thankfully the Court granted bond to C.A. so that she could return home to be with her family and especially her children.”
The underlying case is “In the Matter of: A., C." (Executive Office for Immigration Review, Immigration Court, Florida).
